Weekend: Werribee Zoo & Mansion!

This weekend, B and I went to Werribee mansion and the zoo! Driving there was easier than I thought. When I was looking at google map, it was confusing for some reason there were two mansions! We visited the Rose garden first, it's an entire garden filled with roses. There were so many different colored roses there you wouldn't believe!

 
My camera is crap so the garden doesn't look as nice as actually being there.
Next was the mansion, it's a huge building. I was expecting something really fancy but the outsides were actually quite run down. Also, I don't really understand why the two buildings are different colors.
 
Me being silly lol I don't even know what that pose is for.
 
Good thing about the zoo and mansion is that they are five minutes apart by car. 
 
We went on the safari bus tour around the open range zoo. The Zebra was hoping to get closer to get some of the giraffes left over food but every time he got close the giraffe would get narky and push him back lol.
 
 Pretending to be archaeologist
 
Finished the day off with my favorite cake - Carrot cake!!! I was thinking about it all day since I saw it at lunch time. It was a tiny bit crumbly other than that it was yummy!

For some strange reason, my photos are darker than usual today. I'm lazy to learn how to photoshop stuff lol

What did you get up to on the weekend?

  8. I love Werribee Mansion!! Reason why there are what appears to be 2 mansions and of different colours is because the lighter more newer looking part is actually a hotel, so you can stay there :-)

  9. Both of those are on my list of things to-do. Maybe this weekend? We have passes to the zoo already :-)

  29. I was thinking of heading to the Werribee Zoo the other week, but then I realised I'd already used by 'buy one, get one free; entry voucher to Zoos Victoria for the year so will have to wait until after June when I get a new voucher! I am desperate to try out my new DSLR there, and also show my American fiancé the Zoo.
