  • Really good family day out. Annual pass makes it a very economical day! Plenty of space to let little ones run free safely (aged 2 and 4), picnic spots all over zoo for mealtimes. Safari bus great fun, lasts about 30 minutes. Zoo shop has good selection and cafe does great muffins.
  • Victoria is lucky to have three fantastic zoos and Werribee is one of them. It doesn't feel as busy as Melbourne zoo as it's so big. Bring your hat and sunscreen in summer as most of the time you will be out in the sun. Plenty of animals to see and good facilities for picnics and groups. The safari tour is a must and the 4wd is good if you can afford the extra $. As with the other zoos, it does pay to be the early bird. If you live in Melbourne consider becoming a zoo member for unlimited access to all three zoos.
  • Recently my family and I went on a slumber safari and it was amazing. You could tell the staff were passionate about there work as it showed in the way they shared their knowledge about the animals with us. The staff related so well with all age groups and they went out of their way to make the whole experience something to remember. Thank you.
  • Had a great time in this open range zoo. Off road safari is a must to know more about the animal behaviour in wild as well in captivity. Our tour guide Gordon was an awesome guy who loves animals. He is lively and enthusiastic who shared a lot of info about these animals.
  • Always a pleasure to come to this place with my 3 year old. He loves the place as there is a lot of space to run around, there is a kids playground as well. The animals look healthy and they have heaps to space to roam around. The safari tour is a highlight and the efforts to maintain the Zoo is commendable.
