Easter holidays at Zoos Victoria

The autumn leaves have started to change colour and the mild weather creates the perfect conditions for a visit to the zoo.

This Easter Victoria’s zoos are going Wild About Play and we want you to join in the fun! Your adventure awaits at Healesville Sanctuary, Melbourne Zoo and Werribee Open Range Zoo.

To help get your kids outdoors these school holidays, Active April is giving participants the chance to win a family pass with Zoos Victoria. Simply head over to the Active April Facebook for your chance to win a family pass to Healesville Sanctuary or Instagram to win a family pass to Werribee Open Range Zoo!

The zoos are full of amazing animals and memorable experiences but did you know we have some great play zones for kids too? From dressing up as a Zoo Keeper in Keeper Kids at Melbourne Zoo, splashing around as part of Creek Play at Healesville Sanctuary, to discovering your talents on a low ropes course at Werribee Open Range Zoo, we’ve got lots of spaces perfect for playing and having fun!

Check out our new Wild About Passport for our list of top activities to play at your zoos and navigate your way around the awesome indoor and outdoor play zones across the three zoos. Simply head to the Wild About website to begin your adventure. Pick a zoo to visit, find the play zones and then share photos of your experience using the hashtag #wildaboutplay for your chance to WIN an amazing prize for the whole family!

The Wild About Passport will map your visit so you can show friends and family your trip. Have fun visiting one, two or all three zoos and increase your chances to win!
