- Type: Zoos/Aquariums
NileGuide Expert Says:
Feeling adventurous? Contact the zoo about their Roar 'n Snore offer where you'll camp and be wined and dined in the old elephant enclosure. Take a guided night tour to see and hear the zoo come alive after dark.
- This novel idea sees the Melbourne Zoo extend its opening hours for special twilight jazz concerts on Saturday and Sunday. Visitors can tour the animal exhibits (except for the platypus and gorilla enclosures) and take a peek at the nocturnal life of the creatures, before heading to the bandstand to hear some of Australia's top jazz performers with lions roaring and birds shrieking in the background. There are also special talks by zookeepers on nocturnal wildlife and barbecues available for an evening meal. Or you can ring in advance and book a picnic hamper.
