Melbourne Zoo, Healesville Sanctuary and Werribee Open Range Zoo are open but everyone, including babies, must have an online ticket before visiting – this includes Zoo Members. With visitor numbers are limited it’s going to feel a little bit like your own private zoo. Entry for children under 16 is free during the school holidays so you’ll need to get in quick if you want to visit.
While the current limits are well below the government guidelines of 4m2 per person (they’re more like 20m2), Zoos Victoria don’t want to take any chances and are also going slow while they gradually reintroduce people to their animals’ home (aka their zoos). Check their websites for confined space sections not open.
Bringing a picnic is a the way to go for eating! You’ll still be able to get a coffee, but it’ll just need to be take away as there will be no dine in options. Additionally, some cafes will be closed.
If you’re not feeling 100%, please take it easy and stay at home and join them online at Animals at Home live with live cams, keeper talks and other virtual updates from Melbourne Zoo, Healesville Sanctuary and Werribee Open Range Zoo. Resident live streams (running 24/7).
