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!

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

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

The Zoo is well set out and a short ferry ride and walk from Perth CBD. Watching the animals up close and especially the orang-utans, which you can see close up. Excellent experience and place to go. :-)

The Perth zoo. There's not a lot you can say about it. It has very little defining features to set it apart. It is great to take people visiting from outer state to but other wise it's very bland and rather worn down. The grounds are well kept and the animals are healthy.

We spent my daughters 4th birthday at the zoo. The grounds are nice, and there is a lot of shade. There is a wide range of different animals on display. We got an annual pass, which is great value if you plan to visit more than three times In the year. Love the old school carousel ride. Was great to... More

While visiting family in Australia we went to Perth zoo and found it to be a very child friendly zoo. Very well laid out with plenty of knowledgeable people with lots of interesting information about whichever animals you were viewing. A great cafeteria with water stations to refill water bottles or have a drink free of course. Definitely worth a... More
