Yarra Valley Nocturnal Zoo

Zoos, Sanctuaries, Aquariums and Wildlife Parks

Have you ever wondered why you never see wombats during the day or kangaroos lying under a tree?

When zoos close is when the animals come out to play and the magic happen. Yarra Valley Nocturnal Zoo guests can get up close and personal with kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, possums, potoroos, bettongs, night birds, owls, quolls, reptiles and many more.

Nocturnal tours are conducted nightly. After your nocturnal tour watch a live feed, nocturnal channel from your accommodation where you can see a wombat in his burrow, sugar gliders feeding and white kangaroos playing.

Highlights include feeding kangaroos and interacting with the very cute sugar gliders. Experience a zoo after hours and get a greater insight into how Australia’s native animals live their lives at night.

Yarra Valley Nocturnal Zoo is located in beautiful Mount Evelyn, bordering the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges. Relax and enjoy the country hospitality and atmosphere within an hour’s drive of Melbourne.

The Zoo also offers various types of accommodation to suit most guests. The accommodation part of the property is themed Early Australian Colonial and all buildings have views of the Zoo. Rooms include Foxtel and Wi-Fi.
