Owner description: Journey through a world of wildlife in the heart of Melbourne. Over 250 species from around the world can be found in the beautiful setting of Melbourne Zoo, just five minutes from the city centre. Stroll through the lush Asian and African rainforests, Australian bushland and even underwater! Walk where tigers roam and monkeys swing from tree to tree. See eye-to-eye with the Orang-utans in their special elevated exhibit, explore the Trail of Elephants and then head down the bush track to see unique Australian wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, wombats and emus. Submerge yourself in our underwater world to see Victoria's iconic Little Penguins, Australian Fur Seals and more! Meet the Keeper: Hear our expert keepers give daily talks about the animals in their care. Close-up Encounters: Book a close-up encounter with one of our animals for a great photo opportunity. Melbourne Zoo is also the proud winner of the Victoria Tourism Awards RACV People’s Choice category, voted by Victorians as their Favourite Metro Attraction in both 2015 and 2016!

Open, airy and animals are happy. Elephants great. Lots of eating areas. Kids area is a bit commercial.

We had a lovely day at the zoo, starting off with being fascinated by the antics of the ever charming meerkats near the entrance, The zoo is well laid out and even if there weren't animals the gardens themselves would make a pleasant stroll. We went on a Monday and so didn't encounter any crowds. All the animals seemed well kept and content. The only negative I have is the dining options were fairly limited - not a lot of choice at the cafeterias - and maybe because of it being a weekday the main dining hall was closed.

We took small children to the Melbourne Zoo - hoping to make a bit of the holiday more for them too. Well - I can honestly say that I was blown away by the amazing Melbourne Zoo. The grounds are so well looked after, the animals are so clearly looked after and the hours just slipped away from us. We thought we would be spending half a day there - we packed a picnic lunch as well, however, we didn't leave until we realised that it was nearly closing time. We all had such a glorious day at the zoo and I honestly can't wait to go back to Melbourne to see this zoo again. It will be first on the list of attractions to see ... again! Loved it, loved it, loved it!
