Best Wildlife Tours in Victoria

With a wide array of exotic flora and fauna, it boasts the best wildlife tours in Victoria. Melbourne Zoo is like no other. It mimics the natural habitats of the animals it hosts. Watch a bushbaby hide among the bushes; platypi playing around in an aquarium and fur seals, reptiles, Gorillas and tigers, roaming around the zoo. Book a tent at the Roar N Snore camp, in case you’re here between September-May. Swing around like Tarzan on a tree-surf down the Mornington Peninsula. Check out Bay of Islands and Tower Hill, home to native koalas, emus and waterbirds. Watch the cutest Penguin Parade, where the world’s littlest penguins line up to march, at Philip Island. Frolic around with a platypus in Healesville Sanctuary. Occasionally, you will find the Purple Swamphen and Mountain Duck in Victoria. The state is also home to the Tiger Snake, a slow-moving reptile.

 

A diversity of endemic plant species and wildflowers are found at The Otways, apart from the Otway Black Snail and the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo. You will also spot koalas among Eucalyptus tree branches, in the most surprising places. When in Victoria, drive down the winding Great Ocean Rd and marvel at of the limestone delight of the 12 Apostles. Take a stroll through the ornamental Royal Botanic Gardens, with a lake in its centre. During game season, go watch a cricket match at Australia’s largest stadium, Melbourne Cricket Ground. Take a Dumpling Discovery Tour as a part of the Walk Melbourne initiative and taste all varieties of this food. Explore the quirky fantasy retreat of Mira Mira, in Gippsland, with its walls done up in bizarre but cute shapes and structures. Take a hot air balloon ride over Yarra Valley to view Australia’s most treasured vineyards. Check out the best wildlife tours in Victoria for a fun filled holiday here.

Melbourne Zoo

Melbourne Zoo is Australia's oldest zoo and was modeled on London Zoo. The zoo was opened on 6 October 1862 at the Royal Park site in 55-acre (22 ha) on land donated by the City of Melbourne. Before this, animals were housed at the botanical gardens in Melbourne. Visitors can see historical cages, including the heritage listed Elephant House, which has been renovated and adapted for use for customers paying to sleep overnight in tents at the zoo in popular Roar and Snore evenings. These evenings allow the public to see some of the nocturnal animals at the zoo in evening guided tours by keepers. One of the most famous exhibits was Quinine the elephant. The zoo is set among flower gardens and picnic areas. Many of the animals are now organized in bioclimatic zones: African rainforest featuring gorillas, mandrills, pigmy hippos and parrots; Asian Rainforest with tigers and otters; and the Australian bush with koalas, kangaroos, emus, echidnas and endangered hairy-nosed wombats.
