  • 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!

  • Medium-sized Zoo with a nice variety of animals, a nice Australian animal section (although the platypus is missing in action) and also a good Asian animal part. The African area's walkways can be a bit crowded though. Good place for a stroll with the kids for about half a day. A year long Zoo membership is cheaper than 3-4 visits, so worth it most of the time.
  • A fantastic zoo with lots to see. Lots of great exhibits and information about the animals. Perth Zoo also does lots of conservation work which you can read about on different exhibits. If you see everything it will take most of a day. The gardens are beautiful and there are lots of picnic places if you decide to pack lunch.
  • Perth Zoo is a great place for a fun family day out. I usually just go with my partner or a friend so it's good for couples or small groups as well. There's a huge variety of animals to look at, and apart from the animals, Perth Zoo's gardens are absolutely beautiful. Facilities are well maintained and presented, staff and volunteers are friendly and informative. The only down side is that the cafe is incredibly over priced, avoid eating and drinking at the zoo if possible. You are allowed to bring a picnic basket or sausage sizzle, don't hesitate to bring food or drinks, but no alcohol. Perth Zoo is a great place to go for a day out, and I recommend it to anyone.
  • Great educational outing for the kids and even adults. I could walk around for hours in awe with the range of animals and wild life. There's something for everyone. Did struggle to find parking on a weekend.
  • We went in winter so its quieter and we can try to see everything. I expected as it was chilly and partial rain the animals would be hiding. BUT NO it was the best day ever. We got to see probably 95% of what was on offer. The baby giraffe was out and about. The Tiger was walking at the glass just to name just a couple amazing moments. I would have to say we had some chats with staff who were great, the food and gift shop isn't over priced. (Nice coffee) What and incredible day everything was out to play and we completely forgot it was cold we had so much fun. We will be back very soon.
