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!

Well kept zoo. Some of the enclosures seemed small when compared to other zoos. Lots of staff around to give information, wheelchairs leant out, difficult to push in some areas. Better to take picnic as food usual overpriced fast food in these types of venues. Overall nice family day out.

We're Perth locals and go every few years, it seems to get better every time. Definitely worth a visit for all ages. Lots to see and good spots for lunch on the grass with bbq areas and even a wet jumping castle for the kids. We went on a hot day and most areas and animals are shaded . Being... More

As usual, I try to visit a zoo early morning before the heat sets in. This day was no different. We arrived just after they opened and I will say, I was pleasantly surprised by this zoo. We had a fabulous time and almost all of the animals were active or at least visible. The orangutans were very entertaining and... More

A great day to spend as Perth Zoo is not too far to drive to. Entrance fee is on the high side. I personally like the renovation and the design of this zoo. It's not a very big zoo if you compared it internationally but it's okay. Getting there on public transport is recommended as parking is quite expensive and... More

Having been disappointed the last time, I wasn't sure quite what to expect. It's not a cheap day out - e.g. $29 for an adult. The animal enclosures were much more lush, and approximated home habitat as much as possible for the animals. The kids were a bit disappointed at not being able to see all the exhibits - but...

Haven't visited the zoo here for many years, we really enjoyed how green and lush the grounds are now, and the quality of the animal enclosures. Even on a hot day there is plenty of shade to make the experience enjoyable.

I think this may be my favorite zoo on earth, and I'm definitely not a zoo person. I loved looking at all the native animals, and actually being able to pet a few of them. Excellent day trip from downtown Perth, and you get to catch the ferry across the river for an additional bit of fun.
