Feast and slumber overnight in the historic elephant exhibit of Melbourne Zoo

Dine in the Elephant House, explore the Zoo after dark, and listen to wild animal stories from your hosts before settling into your private tent for a night amongst the wildlife.

Wake in the morning to the calls of gibbons and birds and enjoy breakfast before a chance to meet the keepers and experience up-close animal encounters and life behind the scenes.

You're then free to spend the day exploring the rest of the Zoo.

Melbourne Zoo provides:

  • Tents and camping mattresses
  • Dinner, supper, and breakfast
  • Admission to the Zoo the following day

You need to bring:

  • Sleeping bag and pillow
  • A sense of adventure
