Ostrich Encounter

Did you know, the ostrich is the fastest flightless bird and can reach sprinting speeds of up to 70 kilometres per hour?

Journey behind the scenes to meet our resident flock of fast-footed Ostrich! You'll have the chance to see their beauty up-close, feed them, and learn more about these unique birds from our expert rangers.

Join us for this amazing intimate experience any day of the week. Best of all, proceeds from the Ostrich Encounter contribute to Zoos Victoria's fight against wildlife extinction.
