Bring the whole family to celebrate Christmas at Melbourne Zoo like never before!

In a new event exclusive to members, explore the zoo until 7pm (and catch a Keeper Talk or two), then tick-off your shopping list at a range of artesian market stalls and 30% off at the Zoo Shop with your membership cards. 

Bring a picnic rug and dine from a selection of food trucks as well as your favourite zoo cafes, while enjoying live music, with acoustic artists for the adults and DJ for the little ones. 

Kids can get into the spirit with face painting, inflatable slides, Christmas crafts, and of course Santa and his elves. Plus, this year is the inaugural running of the ‘Melbourne Zoo Members' Christmas Chase,’ a multi-round running of musical chairs with prizes to be won!

Get your tickets now to join in all the festive fun.

Note: If Melbourne Zoo is closed on Friday 3 or Saturday 4 December due to government restrictions, this event may be rescheduled or cancelled. Ticket purchasers will be notified via email and advised of possible date change and/or ticket refund arrangements.
