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.

nothing stands out and grabs you about this place when you're here. guess because they are so far from the rest of Australia they don't need to do to much to get people as their competitors are a long way away. but if you are stuck in Perth for a day or two then it is worth your time to... More

Was excited to hear that there's a Komodo Dragon at Perth Zoo, but he was hiding on the day of our visit. However, we got lucky with many of the other animals and had some lovely experiences as there weren't many visitors around. My fave was the numbat, having not seen one before. I had no idea they were so... More

We spent two hours walking to different stations to see animals. They are mostly resting and refused to be seen. Occasionally we saw some popular animals but not too many types. The free tour guide did explain nicely about the animals but we were rafter disappointed about not seeing most of them. There were a lot of school kids on... More

I would say for first time seeing kangaroo, wallaby and koala, it's worth the dollar that we have spend.... More

Perth Zoo is a lovely place to visit. The animals looked like they were happy and well cared for. As an avid animal lover I always check what condition they are in and how much space they have in their enclosures. The guides walking around were quite helpful and there was a lot of information about each animal. The only... More

I've been to a few different zoos and wildlife centres in Australia recently and I'd say this one ranks around the top. It's really large which kept me roaming around for a few hours. The animals looked like they were well looked after and there was a lot of reading material to learn about each animal. I was very happy... More

Get on the tram for a small fee but worthwhile as the guide explains and chat up everything about the zoo and animals. Cosy and nice place smack right in the city :)

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
