Located just minutes from Perth City, Perth Zoo is a convenient and beautiful way to meet Australia's incredible wildlife.

Ever wanted to immerse yourself in the Aussie outback but have Asia's stunning rainforests and Africa's wild savannah right around the corner? Perth Zoo, with over 1500 animals and some of the most beautiful gardens in Western Australia, is your ultimate day out.

Open every day of the year, Perth Zoo inspires and directs all work to save wildlife. Go for a bushwalk and discover the best of Australia's wildlife including koalas, emus, wallabies, kangaroos and our enormous saltwater crocodile, Simmo. Go for a safari through the African Savannah with rhinoceros, giraffe and lions or delve into the Asian Rainforest and meet elephants, Red Pandas, tigers, otters and a colony of endangered Sumatran Orangutans.

You can explore at your own pace or take advantage of the many Zoo docent volunteers who have a myriad of stories to tell and help unlock some of the hidden secrets of the Zoo.

With at least half a day needed to see the Zoo, we recommend a full day to make your experience the best it possibly can be! The carousel, wagon hire, zebra car rides, keeper presentations, free electric BBQ's, picnic tables and cafe make the experience all the more worth it. For the more adventurous get up close and book a daily Eye to Eye experience - you might feed a giraffe, pat a rock wallaby or meet our quokka!

Lovely day but Take a packed lunch

We left home early with no 1 grandson aged 2. The car park was full of people with the same idea of getting home pre lunchtime nap it seems! Whilst the enclosures were well done... read more

We came to the zoo as a family get together to enjoy the zoo and sit on the shaded grass to have a picnic. We found a shaded spot in the Oak lawn, set up our chairs and rug got the food out and then approached by what appeared to be a waiter and told to move on. The entire... More

Over all it wasn't that bad, considering it's central location to the city. Just a short ferry ride from the city and your there. A few of the animal enclosures were closed for renovations, but in general was a good morning. Walking around the zoo is easy enough, but can get a little confusing with direction. Even though the zoo... More

Enjoyed our visit to the zoo.Particulaly enjoyed the orangatangs who put on a display for the visitors you would think they knew we had our cameras out. Seems to be a fair bit of work going on to modernise which no doubt is a good thing.

always love waking up to the White Cheek Gibbons whooping away as they chase each other around their pine tree when the sun first comes up and to hear the lions roaring in the night, a pity visitors don't see these things, but there is plenty of other things to see, lots of snakes, masses of Orangutans, baby meerkats, bats...

Situated in north Perth across the river from the CBD. The zoo is brilliantly laid out in a variety of settings, African Savanna, Australian outback etc. It is a great day out for the family at a reasonable cost. The zoo is not only good for the visitors, but the enclosures are designed with the animal’s wellbeing in mind, you... More

There was a lot of construction going on and a lot of the animals were actually hard to see in their enclosure. I was disappointed with the overall feel of the zoo and the animals did not even look interested in anything

I booked a tour online unfortunately there was not enough time from the ferry at 2 to walk to zoo to meet the 2 :15pm tour, because we missed the tour we did not get a refund of offer to go on another tour so I lost money on that. We hired a wagon and my daughter enjoyed our own... More

We’ve been to the Perth Zoo in October and we were not so amazed. We could not see many of the animals, among which: red panda, quokka, numbat, koala, otter, wombat, baboon, meerkat, tree boa, ect… It felt like treasure hunt. Trying to figure out where the animals were and it feels like some animals may have been relocated though... More
