  • 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.
  • Outstanding zoo. Perfect size for a day. No commercial hard sell ( you can leave without passing through the gift shop if you want!) Clearly really care for their animals. Amazing husbandry and enclosures, orangutan training program is world leading, elephant gets walked daily around zoo on footpaths which is amazing to see. Just excellent all round!
  • The animals just look so happy there. I recommend this to people coming from anywhere! It's nice and shaded, so not to worry if you choose to go on a hot day. Lots of play and picnic areas. Food there is good nice variety! Loved it!
  • Took my grand children to this quaint little zoo. Not too crowded with numbers just right. Got up close and personal to the beasts of the earth and marveled at creation and its beauty and diversity. The Perth Zoo also had a century old carousel that entertained the grannies exceptionally well. Did we all love the visit? Heck yeah to that!
  • I'm glad most of the animals have so much space, although still in captivity, but my major issues with Perth zoo is that they are missing so many animals and every thing feels super sad and depressed. Also, the entire zoo feels like it was designed by an animal hoarder rather than from an educational viewpoint. Most animals are barely visible from the viewing screens or platforms, I wouldn't begin to know how to improve while also keeping the animals happy and comfortable other than restructuring all walk ways to maybe be looking down on all the larger animals, rather than having to look around all the foliage and squint because it's always a hot day in Australia and the animals prefer to lounge in the shade at the very back of the enclosures. Because why put the shade on and near the public, they the paying public burn their butts off and frankly don't get their moneys worth.
