Enjoy access to Melbourne Zoo before it opens and relax with breakfast at the Giraffe Lookout Café.

Join one of our amazing Melbourne Zoo keepers exploring the trails as the animals wake for the day. Will the lemurs be getting ready for breakfast? Or will our pygmy hippo be taking an early morning swim? 

Take a sneak peek behind the scenes before the zoo opens as we share incredible stories of Melbourne Zoo’s transformation from farmland to world-leading conservation organisation. Then finish with a delicious breakfast hamper* and freshly brewed barista coffee or tea at Giraffe Lookout Café.
