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!

We visited on the hottest august day in 13 years, what a perfect place to spend a beautiful day! We had pre booked for $5 to take our 4yr old to feed the giraffe called Armani, which was well worth it, we were taken behind the scenes and were given lots of information on giraffes and their habitat, very informative...

Perth zoo is located at South Perth in Western Australia. It is a family of lots of animals. Apart from normal Mammals, Reptiles and birds, Australia-localised animals like kangaroo, Koala and emu will also be found here. Young children really enjoy spending a day here.

We specifically went to the Australian Bushwalk section of the zoo as we wanted to see the Australian mammals. Hugely disappointed that the Koala, Quokka and Numbat enclosures were closed when we visited, as the first two animals were the very ones we wanted to see! We enjoyed seeing the Tasmanian Devils scurrying around though.

We went to the zoo by ferry which was lovely. The zoo is set out quite nicely making the most of the space. There was quite a lot of work going on at the time and some of the animals were not on view. No koalas which was disappointing. The zoo is split into different areas separating animals from different... More

I'd say that Perth Zoo is one of the nicest zoos we have visited. It was quite exciting to catch a boat across the river to the zoo, a change from the usual hotel to zoo taxi ride! Plenty of animals to see with nice big enclosures. The area outside of the zoo entrance is also nicely designed, a short... More

Spent an afternoon at the Perth Zoo. Although it is not as big as others in Australia, it still had all the animals to see. A great orangutang exhibit - very large! Loved the meerkats - there were so many. A great place to spend a day while in Perth.

We went for a late afternoon trip. The zoo is fairly small and this limits the size of some of the exhibits. The highlights were the kangaroo enclosure and also the huge crocodile. Most importantly all the animals appeared happy and well cared for.
