Roar ‘n’ Snore guests wine, dine and sleep where the elephants once walked, in the Historic Elephant Exhibit.

Built in the 1940s, it has been revitalized to provide a unique camping opportunity. After dinner in the Elephant House, guests explore the mystery of the Zoo after dark. Hear, smell, and see nocturnal creatures and share the passion, knowledge and stories of your camp hosts. After supper, retire to your tent for a well deserved night’s sleep.

Wake in the morning to the calls of gibbons and birds and enjoy breakfast before a chance to meet the keepers and experience up-close animal encounters and life behind-the-scenes.

Melbourne Zoo provides: tents and camping mattresses; dinner, supper, and breakfast and admission to the Zoo the following day.

You need to bring: a sleeping bag, pillow and a sense of adventure.
