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!

A respected and acclaimed Perth icon. Perth Zoo is well known for it's conservation programmes and is continually improving and updating the facilities both for the animals and visitors. Although it is not a huge zoo the exhibits are accessible and information readily available from the enthusiastic and knowledgeable docents who are there to give the visitors a positive experience....

Set in a beautiful suburb of the city the zoo is a wonderful oasis. Lovely trees and plants as well as a good selection of animals and birds. The enclosures are large and well designed for their occupants with stimulation a priority, the orangutan enclosure is an amazing modern sculpture and should not be missed.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Perth Mint with a great tour guide. The tour was very informative about Australian history and the the mint itself. The demonstration of making a gold bar was also enjoyable.
