WERRIBEE AND SURROUNDS

Werribee is a surprise package of touring potential, all within 40 minutes drive of Melbourne. It’s a bounty of fun – a bundle of wildlife encounters, nightlife and entertaining history waiting for you to explore.

Head to the Werribee Park Tourism Precinct for a hub of visitor activities in a single handy zone. Get ready to experience an African adventure just beyond Melbourne at Werribee Open Range Zoo. Board an open-air safari bus and tour the savannah, spotting iconic grassland animals including a herd of zebras milling at a waterhole or giraffes galloping across the horizon. Hang around for zoo keeper meet-ups, time-out for the kids in the indoor play zone and a wealth of wildlife conservation learning.

Linger in the magnificent scents of the beautiful Victoria State Rose Garden on your way to step back into the past at the grand old Werribee Park Mansion. 

Take the family and soar into aviation history at the RAAF Museum Point Cook, the birthplace of the Australian Flying Corps and the Royal Australian Airforce. Discover interactive air displays and hangars full of restored military aircraft.

In town, the Watton Street eatery strip offers cafés, restaurants, pubs and wine bars bouncing with appetite fillers, day and night.
