Werribee Zoo in Melbourne: Feeling Like Kids Again with Klook!

Our recent 14-day vacation in Australia was obviously not enough to see most of the tourist attractions in  Sydney and Melbourne. The country is almost the size of the US continent so we didn’t expect to be able to cover everything in one visit.

Planning your Australia Itinerary

Before your trip to the Land Down Under, we recommend having an itinerary on hand; not only as a guide but also because it will be asked for in your Australia visa application.

And one of the tourist spots we had so much fun was the Werribee Zoo in Melbourne. We included this day-tour of the Werribee Open-Range Zoo since it was just a short trip outside of Melbourne.

We initially booked our day tour of Werribee Zoo on Klook for only Php 1,416 or AU$37 per person. Usage of the mobile app and transaction was fast and easy. We paid using a credit card and received the voucher / e-ticket via email right away.

How to Go to Werribee from Melbourne City

We took the tram from Melbourne city via the Flinders Street railway station to Werribee.  It took us only 30-minutes to reach the station.

From the there, we walked towards the bus station and took Bus No. 439.

We waited for about 20 minutes before the bus arrived and brought us to the zoo. In total, the entire trip to Werribee is about an hour from Flinders.

Moreover, we suggest that you have already purchased your own Myki card prior to riding the tram and the buses. You can get one from all Metro Premium storesMetro Railway stations, and 7-Eleven stores for AU$20.

  1. Melbourne’s trains, trams and buses
  2. V/Line trains between metropolitan Melbourne and Eaglehawk/Epsom, Seymour, Traralgon, Waurn Ponds and Wendouree
  3. Buses in Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Seymour, the Latrobe Valley and Warragul

Inside Werribee

Upon arriving at the Werribee Zoo counter, we just showed our Klook e-ticket.

We were then given a map and some instructions including the last tour of the Safari Bus. Make sure to catch the Safari Bus /Train and experience the Safari Adventure at Werribee Open Range Zoo.

We joined the 4pm tour.

The bus/train has open windows so you would see and take photos of the wild animals clearly.

However, you are not allowed to go down of the bus/train during the entire trip. A staff from Werribee Zoo talks about the zoo and the animals as you go along the tour.

It would be good to note that Werribee Zoo can get real cold during winter so make sure to wear proper gears and a winter jacket when you visit.

After our tour, we still had some time to go around the zoo and explore the other attractions including the cat maze and watching the ‘hippos’ – the most dangerous animal of Africa. Hippos are semi aquatic mammals native to sub-Saharan Africa.
