Really enjoyed wandering through this zoo, although it got pretty hot, so maybe take an umbrella with you! It's a lovely way to spend a few hours, when you have some time to kill.

Although smaller than Melbourne and Taronga Zoo, Perth is well laid out and the animals have nice natural looking enclosures. I found the kiosk to be way over priced for mediocre cafe snacks. It is a shame the butterfly house is no longer there but overall a lovely day out.

Perth Zoo is set amongst lush vegetation, parts of it feel like a Tropical Rainforest. Visitors face hundreds of solar panels that create a covered walkway and produce electricity, a sign of Perth's commitment to sustainable operations. Animals on display are from near and far, a chance to find out how this organisation is saving local wildlife, as well species... More
