Werribee Mansion & Zoo

Hi everyone!

I hope you’re all doing better than me – I’m still sick, and on my third day home from work in a row. Let me tell you, I’m going crazy with boredom.

Being that I can’t really gather the energy to move from my bed at the moment in the state I’m in, I thought it might be fun to look through my old hard drive, and grab some pictures off it to make a new post for you.

Three years ago now (how has it been that long?!) my friend Meagan and I stayed at the Werribee Mansion. If you’re located in or around Melbourne, you should definitely check it out – it’s beautiful, huge, and inexpensive… and Werribee OpenΒ Range Zoo is right next door! You can explore the zoo yourself, or take a safari tour around and see the animals up close & personal.

      That’s so sweet of you! :) and yes, if you’re ever in the area you should take a weekend to stay at the mansion, and take a walk around the garden & zoo! Such a nice activity.

      It’s massive – the castle itself, and the garden surrounding it! So pretty.
