hippo beach and water play @ werribee zoo, werribee

Werribee Zoo just keeps getting better, and better.  Mamma NEVER wants to leave this place.  Hippo Beach has been the latest and greatest addition and its right next to the hippo water play area which means you've got summer covered - first, spot some hippos snoozing on the bank and gliding through the water, then hit the beach for some serious sand play and relaxing. beneath the thatched umbrellas - you’ll find plenty of buckets and spades along with buried treasure to uncover. Grab an ice cream while watching the little ones enjoy feeling the sand between their toes, climbing over the hippo sculptures and using tools to dig, sift and scoop up the sand.

Mamma's special mention:  

Be sure to pack the kids’ bathers (or at least a change of clothes) for a cooling splash through the hippo water play area, before jumping on the safari tour for more zootastic animal experiences like rhinos, giraffe, zebra and ostrich out on the savannah.
