  • Went to see the “baby” giraffe who is already quite big and playful. Wonderful couple of hours wandering around the grounds. Saw lots of animals and enjoyed it  more »
  • The first time to see a small kangaroo in the mother's chest bag inside, haha, so special! Animals aren't much, but people who appreciate exotic things like to see something different!

  • I love the Perth Zoo. It’s spacious and they really make an effort to house the animals in a natural environment. The grounds are beautiful with plenty of shade and seating. There are regular talks about different animals during the day, the penguin feeding is very popular! I enjoyed the walk through enclosures and nocturnal house. There’s an original carousel for the kids. You can bring your own picnic or purchase food from the cafe, the cafe has a good selection and is pricey but the proceeds support the Zoo.👍
  • I love this place. So many animals, and all are very well looked after. It is much better than many other zoo's I have been to. A wide variety of animals. A good but expensive cafe. A great playground for the kids. Very well located in the heart of the city, and easy to access via train or ferry. Plenty to do and will keep you entertained for hours at least. My favourite bit, as always, is the nocturnal house. Please don't let your kids be noisy or bang on glass here though.
  • Having not visited a zoo for many years I was pleasantly astonished by Perth Zoo. Most impressed by the garden/jungle like nature of the whole environment. All of the animals seemed contented - except the elephants - The highlights for me were the tree kangaroos, complete with very photogenic joey, the giraffes and most of all, the Australian wetland bird enclosure which is superb. Also deeply appreciative of the absence of "zoo smell". I shall certainly return next time I am in Perth - and I shall take a picnic.
  • Great family day out. Would suggest taking your own food as cafe is pricey and has a lot of room to grow - doesn't compare to most zoo's could do with a proper licensed restaurant with healthy fresh options. Enclosures and animals are world class plenty of viewing platforms Plenty of grassed play areas for picnics and children to play. Plenty of amenities although limited baby change facilities Good easy layout. Wheel chair accessible Fairly priced. Plenty of extras for a price.
  • Well maintained in a natural atmosphere. They treat the animals gently with love and care. It is one of the best places in Perth you can go with your kids. It is a bit expensive but the way they have kept the place explains the cost...
