Werribee Zoo school holidays night adventures
You are never too old to visit a zoo and you would have decided early in childhood what animal you liked the best. I like the Meerkat because their heads are always looking up to see what is going on.

From the 7th to 14th July 2018, Werribee Open Range Zoo at Werribee in Victoria will be opening their doors to an after-dark experience where you can spot the animals by torchlight. Not only will you be able to see the animals and how they are at night but there will also be fire performers, lantern parades, toasted marshmallows by the campfire, bandicoot hideout, monkey house behind-the-scenes, secret gardens to explore and getting yourself lost in the glow zone. Look for one of the keepers for talks on the Hippo's Cheetahs, Lions and Wild Dogs.

This is not the only event happening at the Werribee Zoo. You may be interested in the daily Keeper Talks, Toddler days, Tuneful Tuesdays, Cirque Africa or more.

Combining with other Victoria Zoos, Werribee Open Range Zoo's vision is to become a world-leading zoo conservation organisation to fight extinction and secure a rich future for all wildlife. Many people have decided to become a member of the zoo or donate thereby keeping up with stories happening with the animals.
