Werribee Open Range Zoo

Meet the Keeper

This is a unique opportunity to hear about our animals from the people who know them best – their keepers.

Each day, we offer opportunities to hear our expert keepers talk about the animals in their care and the conservation work being done for various species. 

Check the times we’ll be talking about your favourite animals and schedule it into your visit!
