Werribee Open Range Zoo

Toddler Thursdays

Toddler Thursdays is bringing the African Village to life every Thursday over 9 weeks at Werribee Open Range Zoo. We have created a unique experience for visitors, with interactive activities like face painting, animal encounters, crafts, dress-ups, hair braiding, music and dance, and more! Each week will feature a different ambassador animal, with the day’s activities tying into this and one of Zoos Victoria’s great conservation campaigns.

Dates and Times: 9.30am to 12.30 pm every Thursday in February and 10.30 to 12.30 every Thursday in March.
