We love going to Werribee Zoo as animals have so much more room to roam. The safari tour is great and get to see animals close up. A great day out with or without kids

This zoo is definitely worth the trip out of the city. Take the time to walk around and experience the openness of the zoo. The keepers around the zoo were so helpful and happy to answer questions and share funny little stories about the animals....More
