With 1,200 different animals from over 160 species, the 1.7-million-square-metre Perth Zoo dates all the way back to 1898 and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors year on year. Holidaymakers flock here to admire the local wildlife they can learn so much about, alongside a range of other exhibits demonstrating species from four different continents around the world.Check out the Australian Bushwalk section for a fascinating insight into the region’s wildlife. With marsupials such as koalas, red kangaroos, wallabies and wombats, not to mention amazing Tasmanian devils, there are plenty of animals to see and admire. In the Australian Wetlands section you can spot local birds, crocodiles, frogs and tortoises before heading to Nocturnal House to see spiders, reptiles, birds and much more.Explore the Reptile Encounter to see native snakes, lizards and turtles, before checking out the Penguin Plunge and its 50,000-litre pool and its reefs, beaches and plant life. Elsewhere you’ll find the African Savannah where you can feed giraffes as well as see the rhinos and lions along with the hyenas, cheetahs and baboons.In the Animals of the Americas section you’ll get to see a rare Galapagos tortoise along with the marmosets, alligators and macaws. In the Asian Rainforest there are orang-utans, sun bears and Komodo dragons along with towering Asian elephants.Make sure you spend some time with the zoo’s botanic collection, with incredible plants from across the country, including everything from roses to huge palm trees.Located in the south of Perth just over three kilometres from the city centre, the Perth Zoo is open every day including major holidays. If you’re coming by car, you’ll have to pay to park in the nearby streets. Public transport is also available; you can board the ferry to Mends Street Jetty too. Under-16s can enter for half the price.

Perth zoo

Go to the zoo by ferrie . It is a good place for a day out. Kids will love it. Kangaroos are free, go and visit the big old crocodile saved from the leather factory.

We went full of enthusiasm but felt let down lots of animals not in the enclosure and any that were we had to find as most of them were asleep.

We may have been unlucky but we chose to go midday onwards when the weather had cooled down a bit for the day. The price to get in wasn't cheap but we wanted to say we'd been. Although once we got in we realised all the animals were sleeping because of the heat. Apparently we should have gone in the... More

We visit the Perth zoo a couple of times a year to see the animals and listen to the conservation work they are doing with other zoos and nature tourism groups. The walk through the Africa section always brings back Memory's of home

Perth Zoo is a highly recommended place to visit when in Western Australia. The diversity of animals is great and they seem comfortable in their habitat. Very spacious and very peaceful to wander around. The guides are very friendly and takes initiative to converse about their animals. One aspect they can improve is the very limited food choices.

Perth Zoo is an amazingly beautiful location. The keepers are friendly and approachable, the animals healthy and content. There is always something new to see. A wonderful place to take children.

Perth Zoo is the most attractive and spacious zoo Iv been too. Very natural beautiful layout, you'd almost feel that the animals are actually in their natural habitat. The disappointing part was the Nocturnal, didn't feel there was a huge variety. Everything else was amazing. An enjoyable and educational day out. May be improvements on places to eat. The BBQs...

Took the kids there in Feb 2015. Very hot, but there's lots of shade. A lot of animals were hiding in the heat but they did come out in the end. Loved the savannah, nocturnal and croc display. Good to do out of school hols as there were only about 100 people in the zoo. Guides were very helpful.
