Wild About Play is a new Zoos Victoria micro-site and app where you can create your own digital passport to navigate all the zoos’ indoor and outdoor play zones.

We are Zoos Victoria Members and regulars at all three zoos – so while we’re happy to play along with Wild About Play I assume that we’ve seen and done it all before.

Well, it turns out that I’m wrong!

Wild About Play is a great way to discover or re-discover different parts of the zoo that you may not know about. There are extra activities planned for each zone too.

At Healesville Sanctuary ALL the play experiences are new to us. We hang out like koalas at Koala Forest….

Even the main playground, which we’ve visited many times before, reveals a new excavation activity in the sandpit.

Make sure you set up an account and log in before you arrive at the zoo so you’re not fumbling around with your phone at the entry gate. However, note that the app doesn’t work until the GPS locates you within one of the zoos – so you can’t upload photos to the digital passport when you’re away from the zoos.
