Melbourne Zoo has a good environment, with woods and lawns, winding paths and a wide range of animals, but not many of them. By the way, it's expensive. I suggest you bring something to eat. The zoo opens at 9:00, but it doesn't have to go too early. Many animals are late for work. For example, the lion was released at eleven or twelve o'clock to eat rabbits... Nevertheless, the lion is very conscious of his work and takes him to the glass to show tourists the Australian characteristics of eating rabbits (hiahiahia kangaroos), duckbills and so on. Don't miss it!
As the largest continent in the Southern Hemisphere, the impression here is that the natural scenery is quiet and peaceful, people and nature live in harmony, a very comfortable feeling. After so many years without thinking about the past zoo, I rushed into the zoo with great enthusiasm.
Melbourne Zoo is the largest city zoo in Australia. There are nearly 1,000 kinds of rare animals living here. The living environment of the animals here imitates the natural environment they used to live in. There are rainforests, deserts, swamps, ice and snow. Animals live very leisurely here, and the design of the tour route is very reasonable. It is absolutely worth recommending to you. A good place to go.
There are many animals in the zoo that we haven't seen before, either native to Australia or from other countries. Kangaroos and koalas are not very lively, sleeping. Most of the other animals are outside, rarely in the cage, so it feels very interesting to see, and can be in close contact with animals, many harmless animals, no fence. Some parks are like going into the forest and seeing animals in the forest. They are very human. They are not like zoos. They are like exploring animals in the forest. They have a wonderful feeling. The tour lasts at least three hours.
The zoo is close to the city centre and buses are available. The zoo is not big, but the environment is very good. It feels like entering the primeval forest! There are many kinds of animals, many of which are not found anywhere else. The snacks in the zoo are delicious and not expensive.
If you come to Australia for the first time and Melbourne for the first time, there is no reason not to.
