Why travel thousands of kilometres, when the best of Africa is only 30 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD? At Werribee Open Range Zoo, you’ll find an amazing array of animals living and roaming in a wide open savanna.
With two function rooms and a selection of outdoor spaces, the Zoo is the perfect place to host a function with a difference.
The Meerkat Function Room comes with entertainment already provided with Meerkats playing in their adjoining habitat outside. This large light filled area has wooden floors and large windows and doors leading out onto the Meerkat deck overlooking Lakeside Cove and the gorilla exhibit in the distance.
The Savannah Function Centre has neutral tones and blackout blinds making it suitable for conferences, seminars, corporate dinners and cocktail parties. The adjoining deck looks out onto the African village and lawn and is a wonderful spot to watch the sun set over the distant Savannah Plain.
Outdoor areas include the traditional African Village and huts surrounded by a large grass area perfect for large family days, corporate events or social gatherings. The Chongola area is perfect for casual barbeques with picnic tables and a private lawn.
