Leaving Geelong, you will arrive at Werribee Open Range Zoo. See rhinoceros, hippopotamus, lions, zebras, giraffe, meerkats, ostriches, gorillas, African wild dogs, numerous antelope, and Australian animals such as koalas, emus and kangaroos, grazing in natural parklands. For two hours explore two independent trails and wander through an African village and take a 35 minute bus drive through the animal park.
The next short stop is the magnificent Werribee Park Mansion. Rediscover a bygone era and experience the grandeur of the estate. Walk the magnificent rose garden and tour the mansion with a unique pastoral history. Then you are off to a delicious grazing lunch at Shadowfax Winery.
