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!

“One of the best zoos”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very well managed zoo, clean and even the animals look very happy there. Really enjoyed the zoo.
Nothing that i disliked about it at all, except that during our visit, a storm hit the Australian section, so we didn't managed to view that area, but I'm sure we will be back again.

“Great encounters”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Always love going here when we come visit from the USA. The animal enclosures are so large you don't feel that they are being deprived of a life. Go in the colder months if you can as the animals are far more active.

Good value for money and really enjoyable. Wide range of animals and the weather was lovely. The butterfly house and the open range kangaroos were very enjoyable.

“Off season”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Melbourne zoo was a great day out. The kid enjoyed it. Easy to get there from Flinders Street station. Only let down was a lot of the animal we not out for show, maybe they should think about off season prices. The baby change was great. Plenty of choice for lunch for kids and adults
