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

Dine with your hosts, 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 a close-up animal encounter 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

This experience is currently operating with a COVIDSafe plan in place, if you’ve done this experience before, it may be a little different this time around (but no less fun!)
