Wild Nights at Werribee Zoo these School Holidays
These Winter school holidays get ready to get wild at Wild Nights at Werribee Open Range Zoo! A must-do Winter tradition for little night owls, this unique experience at the Werribee Zoo is an adventure you and your family will never forget.
Wild nights provide a range of fun and exciting kids activities to see and do, so get your torches out and explore the African Trail by light. Listen out for the nocturnal critters starting their day. Hear their squeaks and hoots and watch out for their dancing shadows.
Find your way to Ranger Kids which transforms itself into the amazing Glow Zone where you will be wowed by twirling, whirling spectacular fire dancers.
