Overview

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!

It is a nice zoo and beautiful park. Take the boat from Elisabeth Quay to South Perth and work about 500 meters to the park. You have an opportunity to walk and touch a kangaroo or be close to the birds. A great park.

Despite the crowd, we enjoyed our day at Perth Zoo. The animals appear to be well looked after. Great care and work has gone into designing the natural look of the place. Carry plenty of water especially if you are with children.

Plenty to see and very well planned. Great way to see the animals typical to Australia and superb vegetation too. The price is good and you can spend a good three hours there. Also a great picnic area. Make sure you watch the elephant show!...More
