Help raise funds for conservation while listening to big-name musicians under the stars
We'd be lion if we said that Zoo Twilights wasn't our summer highlight.
The concert series kicks off in January and attracts some pretty big names in music. Kicking things off on January 25 will be Client Liason, followed by a very special double headline performance by Briggs and Archie Roach on January 26. International acts including Cat Power, Hanson, the Internet, Rufus Wainwright, Marlon Williams and Aloe Blacc will all be hitting the stage, as well as local heroes Sampa the Great and Remi, Daryl Braithwaite and Ross Wilson, Vera Blue and The Cat Empire.
Topping the line-up, of course, are the Zoo's wild residents. All proceeds from the Zoo Twilights summer concert series will be going back towards the zoo's conservation work, including work to save the Eastern Barred Bandicoot from extinction.
No Zoo Twilights night is complete without a gourmet picnic – pre-order a hamper with your tickets or check out the Taste of Twilights food zone on the night for street eats from some of Melbourne's best food trucks. Zoo Twilights tickets also include exclusive zoo entry from 5.30-7pm before the show (Zoo Twilights tickets do not include entry to the zoo prior to 5.30pm).
