  • We were a little worried that it was going to be a long drive as we had never traveled to Werribee before but it wasn't that far. I'm glad we did the trip it was an amazing day. It's not something we ...  more »

  • 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!
  • Such a great place for locals and tourists to visit. I am a zoo member and find out hard to choose a favourite. I recently had a Close Encounter with the Servals. Paul was our gracious host and was extremely thorough in ensuring we got the most out of our experience. Can't wait to return for another encounter.
  • Both open range and small space enclosures. Have been here before and stayed in the tents over night which we then had a more private tour and saw the animals longer than if you go and get on the safari train. The food on the over night stay was really good and the food from the Cafe is quite nice. Easy to get there from the city with a few options to get there if you do not have a car. We hired a car which ended up being cheaper then the bus option for us. Easily spend the whole day here. Only two gripes we have had. Train trip was way to fast and if a talk goes longer then expected you may be locked out of the small cat talk which happened to us.. They are doing good conservation work here.
  • We had a fun day out here even though it was a cold winter's day. We got rained on and even copped small hail on the open windowed safari bus. None of this soured our time though. I don't think it was quite as interesting as the Melbourne Zoo, but I liked that the animals have so much space to move around in.
  • Living in the far eastern suburbs we always wondered, being so far away if it was worth the effort of travelling. However we took the train and both my 8yo son and I were more than just pleasantly surprised. The experience was memorable informative and most enjoyable. We will certainly do this again in the near future Well done RRN
