* Dare to enter Lion Gorge at Melbourne Zoo *
This summer, Melbourne Zoo opens its newest experience: Lion Gorge.. Dare to enter Lion Gorge and come face-to-face with our magnificent African Lion bachelor group. Learn about the shifting dynamics of dominance that happen within a group of male lions and see our three lion brothers display sibling rivalry that a lunch-time meal can produce at our new Lion presentations. Plus, you can try your hand at designing beadwork that can help to protect lions in the wild. See our new African Wild Dog pack settling into their new home and hear all about this alert and agile hunter during their presentation. You'll also be able to test your skills as a predator, searching for prey through a series of challenges. And, be amazed by one of the most awe-inspiring creatures on earth, the Philippines Crocodile, in the new exhibit. This freshwater crocodile is critically endangered in the wild, with its numbers only in the hundreds. As part of the Lion Gorge experience, you can complete challenges to see what it's like to work with local community members to find and protect crocodile hatchlings. Plus, this summer only, Melbourne Zoo will be transforming the historic Main Drive into a stunning gallery of wildlife photography, and our presenters in the Keeper Kids play space will be telling stories and running special fun activities with bite! Don't forget, kids are free every weekend, Victorian Government school holidays and public holidays! This is a permanent exhibit however we have additional events and activities running throughout the summer months.
