If you’re looking for something different to do this school holidays, Werribee Open Range Zoo is hosting a new, meaningful and immersive experience, for you to connect with Australian animals, and Indigenous culture.
Over the 16 Days (September 21st – October 6th), Kulin Dreaming allows visitors to get up close and personal to some of Australia’s most iconic, and endangered animals, whilst hearing tales from elders and members of the local Kulin Nation community and participate in Aboriginal cultural activities.
From cooking damper and making bush tea, learning aboriginal dance, to hearing stories about animals, and saying g’day to the Zoo’s resident and iconic koalas, emus and kangaroos and perhaps catch a rare glimpse of the critically-endangered Eastern Barred Bandicoot, and Orange-bellied Parrot, Kulin Dreaming aims to give visitors an unforgettable experience of animal memories and a more informed understanding of our Indigenous culture.
Kids under 16 are free on weekends and during school holidays.
