Soon first arrival I was excited, 62 years and never been to a zoo. Then I became sad, the perth zoo maze is not so amazing. The sadness of the animals, looking so hot with minimal water around them and shady spots. A lot of...More

Not too big, but lots of paths and animal exhibits. A short walk from the ferry from Q. E. Quay to S. Perth (if you crossed from Perth), the zoo has all the usual Aussie suspects, plus many birds and a very nice orang-utang enclosure....More

Peaceful, relaxing and beautiful. Well worth a visit. Any day you receive a discount on the entrance fee, if you have an HCC or PCC or DSP card. Highly recommend.

We popped in just to be nosey as we're very much into saving wild life and conservation and found the zoo interesting and lightly informative but feel they could've made more of a noise about their programmes for the animals. That said a great day...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the zoo. It was a hot day but the zoo has a great shade canopy which makes it really cool. There are lots of activities to do throughout the day and many different things to see and do. Plenty of...More

Hi. You are not allowed to feed the animals in Perth Zoo. But it is a fantastic place to visit. Well worth going. But go to Caversham Wildlife Park to interact with animals. Well worth a visit. Enjoy.

Your itinerary is good. Drakes apartments are located in South Perth. Plenty of cafes etc in that area to eat. Maybe get fish and chips to take away and sit on the foreshore andwatch the city lights. Its very beautiful. (don't forget insect repellant). If you can move Fremantle to a Friday or Saturday then the markets will be open. Also there is a big park in Freo where the kids can runa and play. On weekends their is a little merry go round and bouncy castle set up for the kiddies. ...More

Hi all I've recently moved to Perth, 2 weeks ago and we've been so busy getting our new home organised and starting work that we haven't seen much around us. So we (just myself and my husband) want to do a day trip this Sunday. We have our own car an are living in the joondalup area but are prepared to drive anywhere. Priority would be to see kangaroos in wild or in a national park. Possible suggestions I have are: Cohunu/ caversham/ the maze/ Yanchep park. Not interested in going to...More

Hi and welcome to Perth! I like the idea of planing Sunday outings to check out your new home :) I really love Yanchep NP as a day trip as you can book a limestone cave tour when you arrive and then spend some time before or after (depending on when the tour is) visiting the koalas, cultural experience (I haven't done this yet), rowing on the lake (when there is enough water!), looking at the beautiful wildflowers, bushwalking, having a picnic on the grassy areas (or getting something from...More

Avoid the Margaret River region if possible on that long weekend as locals tend to go south so will be busier than usual. Lots of things will be open and they may be special events in Perth and Fremantle. Maybe not Department stores but this public holiday is not like Easter and Christmas. Don’t forget that many of the states wonderful attractions are free and always open- parks, River and beach front areas plus our terrific playgrounds. Just have the right clothes and you can usually get...More
