Werribee Open Range Zoo

Go Bananas with Gorillas

Get closer than ever before to our Gorillas, Motaba, Ganyeka and Yakini, these school holidays and see how well they have settled in at Werribee Open Range Zoo!

Come along and really get to know these remarkable animals. Go nose-to-nose with our bachelor boys at special daily feeds. Hear about Ganyeka and Yakini’s playful personalities and journey towards adulthood, when our keepers share tales in our all-new Gorilla Keeper Talk at 2pm daily. 

And make sure you visit the African Village to be entertained by the Amazing Drumming Monkeys, presented by Streets, as they perform daily at 11am and 1pm during the school holidays.

Plus, when you visit, you have the chance to go into the draw to win a Gorilla behind the scenes experience or Gorilla painting! Simply bring your old mobile phone to recycle between 1st March and 31st May to go into the draw. Winners will be drawn 3rd June 2013.

With kids free all Victorian Government school holidays, what are you waiting for – Go Bananas with Gorillas this autumn!
