4) Werribee Open Range Zoo
Our visit started with a safari ride. The variety of animals was not large, but giraffes were ruminating their food right next to our vehicle while the zebras were pretty close too. Other animals we saw during the ride included the rhinoceros, the camel and the antelopes. I managed to take quite good photos with my android phone. Giraffes and zebras are amongst my favourite animals, so I was quite satisfied with the ride.

On the left side of the zoo, there were Australian animals. We only saw emus though. It seemed like the koala and kangaroo exhibits were under maintenance. There was also a promising playground for children, but as the shuttle came to pick us up at 2 p.m. (too early), our children did not get a chance to play.
