Werribee Open Range Zoo, Werribee South Reviews - Write a Review
You will feel that you are in a safari when you go to the Werribee Open Range Zoo. There are a lot of spaces for a picnic, so pack a picnic and enjoy your time on the greens. There is a marvelous playground that your little person will enjoy, while you chill on the lawn. A must do is the safari ride, where you will come close to the beautiful residents of the zoo. The lion enclosure is simply amazing and you will feel as if the lions are just in front of you.
Very, very family oriented and friendly. So many places for kids to play, plenty of water refilling stations and bathrooms, plenty of cafes and places to eat a packed lunch. It's essentially a giant playground for kids with a few sleeping animals in-between the different play areas. This zoo is essential to do if you have kids. If not I'd probably go to the main Melbourne zoo instead as there seemed to be more animals there. Safari that was included in the ticket price was probably the highlight of the day.
Very nice zoo, open space. Good for family and kids to roam around for a great day out. The also have regular activities for the family. Great place to frequent, especially if you are a member. However, just a note of a somewhat unpleasant incident during the recent Boo Halloween event, when my son lost a piece of his costume. My wife contacted the zoo, but was met with staff who did not seemed to be interested in helping us look out for the missing item. Their response seemed to be indifferent and sounded patronising. My wife was pretty upset that the costume item was lost for good.
What a fabulous Experience! We did the overnight Slumber Safari. Renee & Emily were amazing hosts. We didn't know what to expect but had nothing to worry about. Accommodation was extremely comfortable and warm, meals were delicious and the zoo experience was amazing. We would go again in a heartbeat. Thank you for such a unique and fun experience!
Safari tour was great but the rest of the exhibits are abit too free-ranging so it's hard for little kids to see the animals. Still a great experience. Also have a nice outdoor playground within the zoo which is always good for kids. Food at the cafe was surprisingly really good so all in all a good half day spent.
