Each night from Saturday 29 June to Saturday 13 July inclusive, Werribee Open Range Zoo is letting you and your family in for a wild and dark evening of adventure.
From 5:30pm, you will be able to enter Werribee Open Range Zoo and venture around our African River Trail, where lions, hunting dogs, hippos and cheetah hide in wait.
Our Serval Under the Stars presentation will have you in awe. Watch these amazing African cats as they leap, hunt and climb before your very eyes, without any cage or glass between you and the action! Please note that there are only two Serval Under the Stars presentations per night and seats are limited. Please express your interest in seeing the show at Admissions.
Warm up in the Meerkat Bistro with our special winter menu. With soups, pasta, fish & chips, pudding, hot chocolate and more available from 5:30pm onwards, we have your dinner, dessert and supper covered!
Head back outside to toast marshmallows around the campfire and marvel at the spectacular fire show.
And be one of the first to see Victoria’s highly endangered Eastern Barred Bandicoot up close in the Creatures of the Night nocturnal house along with a Tawny Frogmouth and some creepy critters like glow-in-the-dark scorpions and orb spiders.
