Melbourne and Victoria for families
So you’ve decided to take the family over the ditch for a holiday. Melbourne offers a great range of experiences for the young and young at heart. From native animals to native views, historic immersive experiences to number one sports venues. The choice is yours to make!
Swap the Melbourne city centre for a safari on the African savannah and enjoy a unique zoo experience just 30 minutes out of town at Werribee Zoo. Tick off everybody’s bucket list with a Slumber Safari sleepover, featuring dinner and drinks, a private animal encounter, night tours, a personal guide and luxury glamping. Wake up early for a sunrise like no other.
Just five minutes from Melbourne’s laneways live over 320 species of the weirdest and wonderful animal species in unrivaled natural enclosures at Melbourne Zoo. Wander past lemurs sunning themselves, venture into the Lion’s Den and be tickled by butterflies landing on the tip of your nose. You’ll feel like a kid again – with actual kids free on weekends and public holidays.
No age is too great to dissolve into giggles at the sight of the world’s smallest penguins waddling along the beach at sunset at the Phillip Island Nature Park. Watch them from the sand and along the boardwalk, then take a multimedia trip through the Antarctic Journey. As a bonus, you’re close enough to be back in Melbourne for brunch.
