Great day out. We went on the regular safari. It was great, and we purchased tickets for the Felix safari, which was the same just you go off road and get closer photos up close with the animals. Both were awesome. Safari in the afternoon 2:30 was cold so pack jackets. The kids really enjoyed the zoo ages 3-9, so a great family day out. Food was very reasonable, so we had breakfast and lunch at the zoo, and cheaper than eating elsewhere.
Werribee Open Range Zoo is an amazing place to visit. The animals are well cared for and the habitats are beautiful. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The animal encounters are amazing and give you an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the animals. The self-guided safaris are great for families and there is something for everyone. The safari buses are great for getting around the zoo and the walking trails are well maintained. The food options are great too and there are plenty of places to eat. All in all, Werribee Open Range Zoo is an amazing place to visit and a great day out for the whole family. Highly recommended!
