Trip to the Werribee Open Range Zoo

Werribee Open Range Zoo A couple of weeks ago, I realised I was missing out on not seeing animals. To fix that, I went to the Werribee Open Range Zoo, and took a bunch of photos. I found the safari tour, really amazing, though now thanks to the equine flu, there are some bits of it that you won’t get to see. Seeing the animals in their natural habitats, roaming around, some coming so close to your safari vehicle, is just amazing.Werribee Open Range Zoo

I was a bit disappointed with the lions sleeping, but can assure you the next time I go, I’ll be checking out the Rip Roaring Feed. I also found out that you can spend the night at the zoo, in what they call a Slumber Safari. I’ve never been on safari before, so maybe this might be an initiation? Has anyone spent the night at the Werribee Open Range Zoo? Please leave a comment and tell us how it went.

If you’ve not paid a visit to the Open Range Zoo, I highly recommend it. The self-walking trails are simply fabulous, and you can discover a lot on the way. Entrance is a mere $23.00, and its probably worth noting the various presentation times, so you get the most out of your zoo visit. Transportation, without a car, is a little sparse, so pay close attention to the timetable for public transportation.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit.

    Just to clear up a common misconception, all of Werribee Open Range Zoos animals, except for the donkeys, are currently on display from the Safari Bus tour. The bio-security measures being taken have not affected the visitor experience.
