  • The best Victorian zoo! Love the free safari tours. Done it so many times now but still enjoy it just as much as the first time I went on it. The feel of the zoo is so nice and relaxing, maybe because it is smaller than the others it isn't as busy. Couldn't rate it higher!
  • Fantastic place for people of all ages and especially families with young children to visit too. Entrance fee includes a ride on the safari bus that takes you around the zoo to see the many African animals they have roaming around. Amazing animals you drive right past them. There's the Australian story trail where you walk along to see Australian wildlife and there are two koalas there to see also. Highly recommended Werribee Open Range Zoo
  • Worth a visit We went on a cold day with a toddler but being able to get on the safari tour and drive around for an hour or so and see all the different animals in the wild was an awesome experience. Enjoyed it very much. Price was reasonable, tour guide was great. Would recommend it to anyone with at least half a day to spare and an interest in seeing animals you seldom see.
  • One of awesome places to visit and everything was amazingly organized by zoo keepers. I was with my family and mother but it was very pleasant experience how they cater needs of everyone in the family. I went for membership as it seemed cheaper than full tickets for adults. Do plan for behind the scene shows, safari tour was a good insight for us.
  • Great zoo. Kids & I Loved the tour around the plains seeing animals up close. Overall a good experience but there’s not as much to see as Melbourne Zoo. Only spent max 2hrs compared to the usual 4 at Melb so not really worth the drive to go again.
