Wild Nights at Werribee Open Range Zoo

A must-do winter tradition, Wild Nights offers a range of awesome activities for all night owls, including dazzling fire shows, marshmallow toasting, late night animal spotting and a secret garden to discover.

Explore the African Trail by torchlight and spot animals along the way.  Listen out for the calls, squeaks and hoots of the night and watch for dancing shadows as nocturnal critters wake and get ready to start their ‘day’.

Head into the Bandicoot Hideout and introduce yourselves to some special, native nocturnal species, but remember to whisper – they’re just waking up!

Find your way to Ranger Kids which transforms itself into the amazing Glow Zone where you will be wowed by twirling, whirling spectacular fire dancers.

As the temperature drops, warm up with friends and family around a flickering camp fire toasting marshmallows or head to the Meerkat Bistro for a steaming cup of hot chocolate while mum and dad enjoy some mulled wine.

For the ultimate Wild Nights experience, upgrade your experience and book in for a special Dusk Safari Tour* across the African savannah. Listen to the sounds of the night as the sun sets, birds come in to roost and the animals settle in for the evening.

Keep warm under the big top and marvel as Cirque Africa* brings their exciting acrobatic performances to Wild Nights with their evening shows. There are limited tickets available so pre-bookings are essential so you don’t miss out.

Take in a Serval Presentation* and get up and personal in an African cat experience like no other.  Not only will you get to marvel at these amazing animals but you will also learn about their behaviours 

Rug up, pop on your gumboots, and bring along your torch and sense of adventure. Wild Nights at Werribee Open Range Zoo – there’s something for everyone to go wild about!
