Werribee Open Range Zoo unveils new arrivals precinct
A new visitor arrivals precinct has been opened at the Werribee Open Range Zoo, offering a spacious new arrivals area complete with external café and amenities, new ticketing windows for faster entry, an enhanced interactive retail area, a Wyndham City Council Visitor Information Centre and additional 250 car spaces.
Speaking at the unveiling Victorian Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith explained that a $2.5 million commitment from the Victorian Government would make the zoo easier, quicker and more modern for over 400,000 visitors each year.
Minister Smith explained "this new arrivals precinct is critical to the future success of the zoo as it continues to draw tourists and families, and is essential to wildlife conservation
"Now in its thirtieth year, Werribee Open Range Zoo is growing rapidly and last year welcomed a record-breaking 420,000 visitors.
"The new entry will improve accessibility and will make sure that the zoo is maintained as it prepares for the next thirty years."
Students from Werribee Primary School were among the first visitors to see the new precinct this week and helped Minister Smith unveil a new sculpture by artist Phil Woodman at the Zoo.
