Werribee Open Range Zoo

Lion Encounter

Join a special guided tour through the Zoo’s world-class Lions on the Edge exhibit before stepping into the ‘lions’ den’ and visiting the off limits areas with our keepers as they feed and care for our lions. At such close proximity you will be amazed by the lions' enormous size and powerful roar. Discover the rich history shared by lions and people as keepers share the secrets of managing the lions' wellbeing in the Zoo and in the wilds of Africa. Meeting lions up-close in the Lion Encounter is an unforgettable experience.

Werribee Open Range Zoo has two new lionesses who are beginning their introduction to the pride. Please note that over the next few months the Lion Encounter will not be available.
