Lions and lemurs and roos, oh my! We all have childhood memories of those magical family trips to the zoo...why not keep them coming with a trip to one, or all three of Zoos Victoria’s awesome zoos? The kids won't believe their eyes! 

Go on an African adventure at Werribee Open Range (hippo, giraffe and zebra galore!), journey through a world of local and exotic wildlife at in the heart of Melbourne at Melbourne Zoo, or immerse yourselves in the Aussie bushland haven that is Healesville Sanctuary, complete with too-cute koalas.

...Or why not do all three? 

"That'll be pricey" is what you're probably thinking, but that's NOT so with an annual Zoos Victoria Membership. Providing unlimited entry to Werribee Open Range Zoo, Melbourne Zoo and Healesville Sanctuary for just $9 a month, you can visit these three zoos as many times as you like (really!) with the kids - and with express entry to avoid the little ones getting restless. Let the animal adventures begin! 

All the Details 

A 365-day membership costs just $9 a month for adults, and General Admission is FREE for kids under 16 - although we think it's worth getting a 365-day Zooper Kids Club membership for just $3 a month, which comes with perks like complimentary carousel passes.

Unlimited entry at Zoos Victoria can go a long way – with loads of events for families across all three zoos, as well as indoor and outdoor play zones to climb like the monkeys, you’ll quickly become a regular. There are also exclusive member parties throughout the year that are jam-packed with fun, music and games.

Other membership perks include a 10% discount on Zoo Twilights tickets and animal experiences. For more information, visit the website.
