A visit to Werribee Open Range Zoo is a given for us every school holidays. Aside from the lions, hippos and gorillas you can hop on the always fun Safari Bus Tour, visit Ranger Kids indoor play space and these school holidays they have added some extra fun for everyone!
Cirque Africa will be setting up their big top in the African Village Lawn from June 30! Their heated tent plays host to a high energy 30 minute show that is the perfect addition to your zoo visit. They have day time shows and you can always combine your Wild Nights (from July 7) and see their evening show. You can check out our full review on this here
Wild Nights kicks off from July 7. This is one of our favourite events and a great adventure of glow in the dark fun, animal visits, fire shows, magic gardens and marshmallow toasting. You can also catch Cirque Africa in the evening over the 8 nights of fun too. You can check out our full review on this here
Mamma's special mentions: A visit to the Werribee Open Range Zoo (or any of the Melbourne Zoos actually!) is FREE for kids under 16 during school holidays - Wild Nights and Cirque Africa are a special events and are additional to your entry fee.
