Owner description: With 1,200 different animals from over 160 species, the 1.7-million-square-metre Perth Zoo dates all the way back to 1898 and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors year on year. Holidaymakers flock here to admire the local wildlife they can learn so much about, alongside a range of other exhibits demonstrating species from four different continents around the world.Check out the Australian Bushwalk section for a fascinating insight into the region’s wildlife. With marsupials such as koalas, red kangaroos, wallabies and wombats, not to mention amazing Tasmanian devils, there are plenty of animals to see and admire. In the Australian Wetlands section you can spot local birds, crocodiles, frogs and tortoises before heading to Nocturnal House to see spiders, reptiles, birds and much more.Explore the Reptile Encounter to see native snakes, lizards and turtles, before checking out the Penguin Plunge and its 50,000-litre pool and its reefs, beaches and plant life. Elsewhere you’ll find the African Savannah where you can feed giraffes as well as see the rhinos and lions along with the hyenas, cheetahs and baboons.In the Animals of the Americas section you’ll get to see a rare Galapagos tortoise along with the marmosets, alligators and macaws. In the Asian Rainforest there are orang-utans, sun bears and Komodo dragons along with towering Asian elephants.Make sure you spend some time with the zoo’s botanic collection, with incredible plants from across the country, including everything from roses to huge palm trees.Located in the south of Perth just over three kilometres from the city centre, the Perth Zoo is open every day including major holidays. If you’re coming by car, you’ll have to pay to park in the nearby streets. Public transport is also available; you can board the ferry to Mends Street Jetty too. Under-16s can enter for half the price.

This is not the biggest Zoo in the world but the animals are well cared for and the facilities are good. There is a nice feel to the enclosed walks and staff are keen to talk to visitors. We took membership as it works out cheaper if you visit often. Its a nice trip over the swan on the ferry... More

A full day just doesn't seem enough to spend at this wonderful zoo. Signposting excellent, staff very helpful, lots of areas for children to let off that excess energy, food outlets very busy. Suggest a packed picnic lunch if you are in a group. Large grassed areas with shade for those picnics. Animals very well looked after and all areas... More

Lovely family day out. This is a great zoo with lovely enclosures for the animals and beautiful gardens. We usually pack a picnic but visited the cafe this time and were pleasantly surprised. New cafe and the food we tried was very nice. Consider a membership if you visit all the time works out much cheaper. We arrived at 9... More

We went to the Perth Zoo not knowing what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised. We had an 18 month old child and are members of the Melbourne Zoo which we love going to. The Perth Zoo was very similar in layout and philosophy to the Melbourne Zoo, lots of plants, Animals looked happy to be there and could... More

Unfortunately several of the animals exhibits were closed ( giraffe , zebra & hyena ) I suggest calling before you go to check if anything is closed. All in all Perth really has a first class zoo and I like... More

We spent a good 4 hours strolling around the zoo. Some of the animals were a bit 'shy' and hard to spot but that's to be expected,as it appeared their natural surrounds,were replicated as closely as possible.which makes for contented animals. There's a little road train,which comes in useful,when your feet are becoming sore. At $27 per adult,it works out... More

It is really great to face a gentle giant like Rhino in a touchable distance, to feed them and even pet them, WOW this was cool. Little avise take... More

Lovely few hours spent meandering through Perth Zoo. Staff are friendly, enclosures are well Maintained, and the animals look healthy and "happy" enough! The baby meerkats were just Adorable!!! Gardens and parklands very nice. Restaurant has good selection of foods ( healthy too). Great day out! 😊
