Melbourne Zoo's Growing Wild is an exciting new interactive area designed especially for children aged three to eight years.
Imagine a place where you can patrol for danger alongside a Meerkat or crawl inside a Giant Tortoise shell to get a tortoise-eye view of the world! And a place where only play, fun, excitement and imagination matter, and where animals are so close that you can see, hear , smell and even touch them!
Growing Wild is a world-first exhibit focused on creating play opportunities and nurturing an early love of nature. The exhibit is filled with animals, sculptures, tunnels and sounds, so kids can scramble, crawl and climb - or stand look-out like a Meerkat.
Play your way through three zones and meet Meerkats, Giant Tortoises and Brush Turkeys, reptiles, insects and other animals that live on the ground. There's loads of fun for the whole family and one visit just won't be enough!
Event is free with general admission
