Run wild at Village Kids
Run like a Zebra or prowl like a Wild Dog in Werribee Open Range Zoo’s exciting new outdoor adventure play space Village Kids!
Little explorers will have a blast navigating their way through this nature-inspired space, making it up to the look-out for a bird’s eye view.
The adventure begins down by the creek bed where kids can search for animal tracks as they leap across stepping stones or balance on log bridges.
Then there’s the rocky outcrop of the Wild Dog dens to explore, a tunnel to crawl through and some tunnelling of their own to do in the dig pit.
True explorers will be able to climb a rope ladder to the look-out, where they’ll love playing with our over-sized beads, making animal noises with the sound pipes and calling messages down to those down below.
From the look-out, kids can slide back down to earth or challenge themselves by inching their way down the vertical pole.
Big and little kids alike will love the basket swing located right in the heart of Village Kids.
You can also jump on board the Safari Bus to see the zebra frolic in the savannah with the giraffe, rhino, ostrich and our other amazing African animals.
Shake off the winter chill and come out to play this spring in Village Kids at Werribee Open Range Zoo.
And remember, kids are free every weekend and public holidays!
