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!

So much to see and learn. A great day out for the whole family including the grandparents. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful. A beautiful environment for exhibits and people. Highly recommend becoming a zoo member. A member of our family had his 7th birthday at the zoo and requested donations to be given to the zoo instead of presents.... More

The Perth zoo had so many different animals from all over the world. Absolutely beautifully kept in South Perth - one of my favourite areas. Going back again with all the family soon!

Beautifully maintained gardens with many varieties of animals to view and learn about as you walk around the grounds. The children's playground is a great place to recharge and have a picnic.

Was quite surprised at all the lovely new enclosures for the animals. Has been quite a lot of changes. Think the Australian section could be quite a bit better, bit hard to find any animals.

This Zoo set in beautiful grounds isn't the biggest in the world. However it has an amazing array of interesting species to view. The Zoo park is involved in a number of international breeding programs, and has beautifully designed enclosures for its exhibits. Not a believer in keeping captured animals, I am a supporter of making every effort to provide... More

Perth Zoo is like a second home to me. whilst small in size only 5 acres the excellent design and set up make it an enjoyable half or full day out without being too much for small or elderly visitors. The Dingo and Elephant walks are my favourite and if you are lucky enough to be there at the right... More
