OK, so they won't be able to dish out their secrets for making a long-term relationship last, but why not get inspired by the clever creatures that manage to mate for life? Adorable otters and cheeky gibbons are just some of the critters that stick with their partner for the long haul, and both have extensive habitats in the Zoo.
Pack your own picnic and blanket and spread out on one of Melbourne Zoo’s picturesque grassy greens. If you listen carefully you'll hear monkey and elephant calls in the background, and after you're finished you can stroll through the rest of the Zoo.
You may have all the cute couple selfies, but have you ever had one with a giraffe? Try out a Close-up Encounter, where you will meet the passionate staff from behind-the-scenes of Melbourne Zoo, who will guide you through a meet-and-greet with the five-metre-tall creatures. After you meet the majestic animals, you'll also get a chance to feed them and get a special photo.
Wake up bright and early and head into the Zoo before it opens for a special private tour. The exclusive group experience will take you on a special koala viewing, a kangaroo meet-and-greet and a native bird feeding session. You'll also get to enjoy a buffet breakfast and there will be plenty of photo opportunities, all without the crowds.
