Imagine camping overnight at the Melbourne Zoo and exploring the mystery of the Zoo after dark? Melbourne Zoo Roar’n’Snore is a unique overnight experience for adults and children (aged 5 years and over) that offers guests an opportunity to wine, dine and sleep where the elephants once walked, in the Historic Elephant Exhibit.
After dinner in the Elephant House, join your camp hosts for an exclusive guided tour of the Zoo and then head back to camp for supper, a campfire and a peaceful night’s sleep. In the morning, you will wake to the calls of gibbons and birds and enjoy a hearty breakfast before a meet and greet with the keepers and exclusive up-close animal encounters before the Zoo opens to the public. You are then free to spend the day enjoying the Zoo at your leisure.
The Roar’n’Snore overnight package includes tent, camping mattress, all meals (including supper) and full admission to the Zoo. You are only required to bring along a sleeping bag and pillow and your sense of adventure!
