The Brevard Zoo is a hidden gem. It is a great spot for everyone. There is a large variety of animals (such as giraffes, you can also feed them!) great gift shop and cafes, and there is also the treetop trekking, which is a zip lining attraction. It is so worth it and definitely a once in a lifetime experience!... More

The Brevard Zoo is a wonderful location to spend the day! Located near I-95, it is a beautiful, well managed zoo that offers MUCH in a city the size of Melbourne, FL. Brevard Zoo is a hidden jewel in central Florida!

It was good, but a little small. Lots of cool animals with easily viewable cages, but it could be better if they played music over the speakers. The volunteers were very nice and would stop to answer questions when asked. the animals seemed pretty active, which was surprising on a warm Florida day.

My girlfriend and I hit the zoo on September 13th and had a laid-back yet informative experience once again. The Brevard Zoo should be a place in which county residents take a great deal of pride. There is something for every age group here and I venture to say that this zoo strongly stands up against others that you would... More

Was looking for something different than going to theme parks with family (just got too expensive). Planned trip to Cocoa beach and one attraction we wanted to see was Brevard zoo with the zipline experience. Definitely recommend the zip and zoo combo but if it's your first time to do zip start with the basic canopy course, zip line experience... More

This is a must see if you are in the Melbourne area. A small zoo with something for every age. There is a petting zoo, giraffe feeding, a parrot who loves to talk and is a riot, zip lines, and the list goes on. You can travel easily from Australia to Africa to Florida and there are plenty of places... More

After living here in brevard for almost 4 years we finally made it to see the zoo. This zoo is the perfect size zoo. I say that because you can actually take your time at each area and not have to rush to get everything done. Because of its size you can actually see everything in a day. The kids... More

Great Facility for the family. Smaller and not as commercial as the bigger facilities allowing an up close and personal viewing of the animals. The kids were too young for the zip line but want to come back as soon as they are. They especially loved feeding the giraffe. Had a great pizza and the kids loved the cheesy breadsticks... More
