Upgrade your visit to Melbourne Zoo and meet our playful seals!

In this exclusive experience, our staff will guide you through the exhibit while you get close to our fin-footed friends.

Each behind the scenes experience will be unique, allowing our keepers to let the individual animals shine and give them the choice to control how they participate.

The behind the scene 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.

Zoo entry not included. Be sure to also book your entry tickets for the same date as your behind the scenes.
