The Melbourne Zoo is the oldest zoo in Australia and home to more than 320 species. Take a walk on the wild side while exploring at your own pace with this general admission ticket.
See Victoria’s marine life at the Wild Sea exhibit, featuring penguins, fur seals, sharks and seahorses. Journey around the globe to the African savanna and watch graceful giraffes and zebras graze among their open-air enclosures. Throughout your visit, learn how the zoo’s conservation efforts are working to protect endangered species worldwide
Monkey around as you observe orangutans from an elevated walkway that crisscrosses their treetop hangouts, and watch ringtail lemurs at play on Lemur Island. Be in awe of magnificent gorillas at a special rain forest exhibit that also futures other tropical species like the fascinating pygmy hippopotamus.
Feel the flutter of tiny wings on your skin at the enchanting Butterfly House, where butterflies may land right on you as you make your way through the lush greenhouse enclosure. At some of the zoo’s many play spaces, kids can learn what it’s like to be a zookeeper or burrow through giant tunnels to mimic the life of a meerkat.
Take a break from your exploration with a stop at one of many restaurants and cafés (own expense). Your day at the zoo is sure to leave you with a renewed appreciation of Earth’s amazing animals.
