Richard adds:

“Melbourne Zoo is a popular outing for families all year round in Melbourne, Australia. And in summer you can enjoy the popular twilight concerts (mixed with appropriate animal sounds) while you have your picnic on the lawns.

“There is a great variety of animals, reptiles, birds and butterflies to see. Make sure you visit in person if you are in Melbourne. Getting to the zoo is easy. Catch the Upfield line train and hop off at Royal Park right next to the zoo entrance.”
