All animal encounters have been cancelled until further notice. More information
Upgrade your visit to Melbourne Zoo and say g'day to a kangaroo!
In this exclusive experience, our knowledgeable keepers will guide you through the kangaroos’ exhibit while you make friends with this famous Australian.
Be sure to arrive fifteen minutes early, and bring your phone or camera for our staff to take the perfect pic of you and your new mate.
The encounter is a brief experience that lasts a couple of minutes with each visitor booked, however please plan up to 15 minutes to meet your host and keeper, and hear the safety briefing.
