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 purchased a membership on the day and it was easily facilitated and good value. The gift shop is lovely with a good selection for those looking for something... More

In winter wearher the zoo is a good place to see.Somuch to see. Animals live freely and in huge areas rather than cages.you can walk in to the Bird cages and they fly over you. You can see many kinds of birds just walking freely in most places with people around.Good experience.

This is the most delightful zoo I've visited. Its conservation programmes are outstanding; visitors are informed of the animals' stories, their habitats, and what you and I could do to protect them. The aim was successful as my teenage son donated many coins in various donation boxes as he felt moved by the information he received and the animals he... More

What a great time we had visiting Perth Zoo. So easy to get around all the areas and loved the vegetation and, of course, seeing all the animals. There was a lot of construction going on in various areas and a large array of animals etc. We really enjoyed our visit and reckon about 2 hrs, maybe a tad more,... More

A nice family day out. Great for younger children as the zoo is not too large, so they will make it around without getting too tired and cranky. You can also hire carts to pull kids around in if needed. There was construction happening when we were there. There is a good range of animals, nice way to spend a... More

We visited the zoo on a bright sunny day taking our grand kids with us. Being so close to the city and a short boat ride across the Swan River makes it so accessible. The admission prices are not cheap but reasonable value for money. A family ticket of 2 adults and 2 children is $75. Concession and seniors pay... More

A trip to the Perth Zoo is a fantastic way to spend half a day with the children. For international visitors it fits in well with a ferry trip across the river to the CBD. The Zoo is continually upgrading with new facilities and enclosures and contains a diverse array of animals separated into walking trails based on geographic regions.... More
