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!

Just love the Australian section - how fantastic is it to get so close up!

Just love taking my visitors to the zoo and watching them in awe as we walk through the Australian walkabout section.

Our family absolutely loved the Perth Zoo. We went during the last week of WA school term so we missed the crowds on school holidays. Took our own packed lunch and drinks. Plenty of bench/picnic areas. We spent a good 7 hours in the zoo and managed to see all the animals. As we walked around, zoo keepers would stop... More

A superb Zoo to explore with many defined areas of interest. You feel like you are in a different world, yet it is so close to Perth. Take the ferry from Barrack St Jetty, meander through Mends St to this interesting attraction. Great for families, visitors to Perth.

Perth Zoo is well designed into different zones. When we take our family we generally try to fit everything in over the day but if youre sensible you'd consider just concentrating on a few areas + get to some of the "Shows" - like tiger feeding etc - rather than trying to race around (with kids) and do the lot.

Hi there, Thanks for your lovely review and we hope you had a wild time delving in to all the different 'continental zones' that we have. Make sure that next time you visit us you check out the 1.45pm elephant keeper talk where you get to see how smart our ele girls really are. Thanks again! More

Kids loved it, great experience and the kids learned lots. Great day out for everyone. You can take a picnic with you and eat it in the park. Lots of walking done too.

We are regular visitors to the Perth Zoo. We joined as Zoo Friends and get to experience this unique and beautiful place as often as we can. The animals are housed in natural habitats and appear to be very well looked after. I have also had the pleasure of going behind the scenes with an educational group.

What a great place to take the family, having Zoo passes we go at least once a month with the Grandchildren. Everything is set in pacific areas and is easily to navigate.

If you have a family, then a zoo is a must. Zoo's help the kids burn energy, kill time and just spend a day marveling at your children wonderment. You can hold a Koala or pet a kangaroo. Nothing glamorous or over the top, but a nice day well spent
