Weird and Wild at Werribee Open Range Zoo
See something WEIRD this summer at Werribee Open Range Zoo!
Do you know which animal used to be called a Camelopard or which animal has been raised by NASA astronauts in space?
This summer Werribee Open Range Zoo is bringing National Geographic Kids: Weird but True animal facts to life with a brand new, limited-time interactive exhibition.
Delve into the weird and wild world of animals through wacky games, fun performance, zany art and unexpected installations.
As you wander through the trails, explore the four fun zones to discover which species glow in the dark, who sleeps in huge nests, things about animal poo you never knew, and many other weird and wild facts about animals.
Extra fun every day of the school holidays and weekends:
- Cheeky animal DJ’s at Werribee Open Range Zoo’s own in-house radio station will show you just how freaky animal sounds can be with fun activities and contests.
- Take part in The Curious and Weird Game of Survival daily on the lawn and see if you can outsmart the zebras.
- Special guests The Mik Maks will perform in the African Village on 13th and 20th of January.
Kids under 16 visit FREE on school holidays!
