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!

Best zoo experience I've had. Immaculate, open, well maintained. A thoroughly enjoyable day! The orangutan house was great fun, and the koala talk was intimate and informative. Loved getting so close to kangaroos!

The animals look to be well cared for and as happy as you can expect. The zoo is fairly well laid out and has lots to see and do.

Food and drink are quite expensive so be prepared for this. If you're not a 'kid person', go in the evenings.

Great way to spend a day with the family. Informative shows, natural enclosures, and a big park for lunch -kids could play while we relaxed and enjoyed a coffee.
