If your question is should you purchase a Zoos Victoria annual membership then the answer is a resounding yes!
The zoo pass is just $90 for the year per adult and your children get free membership included with your adult membership (they even get their own cute membership card and a VIP lanyard to wear on zoo visits.)
The pass covers the three Melbourne area zoos; Werribee Open Range Zoo, Melbourne Zoo and Healesville Sanctuary as well as providing reciprocal entry for other zoos around Australia such as the Dubbo, Perth, Sydney and Adelaide zoos.
In the 7 months since we purchased our membership it has saved us hugely! If we were to purchase individual tickets for our visits it would have cost us over $382. We still have 5 months worth of membership left to make the most of.
One of the great benefits of the Annual Zoo membership is you can pop in to the zoo for a short visit. If your little ones are tired you don’t need to spend the whole day to get value from your ticket. Each of the Melbourne Zoos has a great play ground too so you can drop in when you’re in the area for some animal encounters and a quick play or picnic. Visit for an hour or 8 your zoo pass gives you this flexibility.
Zoo membership also gives you entry to the twilight sessions at the Werribee Zoo over summer where the zoo remains open late and some great bands play on the grassed area by the playground. A lovely way to spend a summer Melbourne evening.
This Zoo membership would be a great purchase for those travelling Australia, it would allow you to visit most of our major zoos for only $90. A true bargain!
We’ll be signing up again next year for sure.
