Melbourne Zoo

A Very Member Christmas


Bjorn Again have arrived at the zoo and the event is still going ahead.

However, conditions are less than ideal. If you would like to come along on Sunday, you are more than welcome and your ticket for tonight will work on Sunday - you do not need a new ticket.

If you are unable to attend on Sunday and would like a refund, please call the Customer Engagement Team on 1300 966 784 between 9am-5pm.


We’ve put a new spin on an old favourite, with activities and entertainment for the whole family. 

In a brand new format for 2018, join us for a magical night of Christmas fun when Melbourne Zoo presents 'A Very Member Christmas,' with Bjorn Again, Jimmy Giggle and the Hoot and Hootabelle Christmas Show!

Over three evenings, Melbourne Zoo will be transformed with special stage performances, carol singing, face painting, carousel rides, Christmas craft and more.

Stage show times are:

  • 6.30pm: Jimmy Giggle and Hoot and Hootabelle Christmas show
  • 6.40–8.30pm: Jimmy Giggle meet and greet
  • 7.30pm: Bjorn Again
  • All night: Sing along Christmas carols and DJ.

So come along from 5.30pm for a stroll around the Zoo (animal areas will be open until 7pm), then sit back and enjoy the festivities!


You can bring along a picnic or buy hot food on the nights. No alcohol will be available for purchase.

Please note, different to previous years, this event is now a stage show with awesome activities. Because Santa is busy appearing on stage only, there will not be any photo opportunities or free gifts.
