This Open Range Zoo has become my favourite of the Zoos Victoria location just after the first visit.
The views of the herbivore bus tour is amazing. You really get to come up close and personal with giraffes, rhinos, zebras, ostriches, and many other animals. They even may walk across in front of the bus and stop the tour. The tour guides are quite knowledgeable and know the names of some of the animals as well as super interesting facts like a Rhinos horn is made out of hair! I didn't know there were different types of stripes on Zebras but now I do!
Once you move on to view all the other animals, you get to see all the other animals. We were lucky to see an animal show on the Serval that showed exactly what they can do and we got to see the three lions really up close! Such an amazing view of such majestic creatures.
Zoos don't normally bring the kid out in me but this one did! On top of the wonderful animal viewing there's heaps of other activities and play areas throughout the zoo, including a Meerkat enclosure next to the cafe so you can watch the Meerkats do their stuff while enjoying a lovely meal!
Needless to say, I've become a zoo member and will be going back there again soon!
