Wow! I was so impressed with this zoo. You get up really close with a wide variety of animals from around the world. They are all housed in beautiful, spacious enclosures with lots of enrichment for them to enjoy. Keepers give frequent educational talks and kids can take part in up-close encounters. There are also great playgrounds for the kiddies and wide,grassy spaces perfect for picnics. I was particularly excited about the Australian Bushlands exhibit, where kangaroo and wallabies roam freely and the walk through aviaries (great for photography). The African Savannah is very well done, as is the Asian rainforest. I will definitely be going back! The only disappointing thing was the idiots feeding the marmosets bits of hot dog right under the sign that said "Feeding the marmosets will make them ill and could kill them". Ugh!
A very good zoo.. This tortoise was a 120 years old..
Perth Zoo is great in all seasons, and even on a hot summer day thanks to it being so shady. It's a good combination of doing the right thing by the animals but also allowing people to see what the animals are doing most of the time. Their behind the scenes experiences are really worthwhile too.
Boutique bright and lively. Try the shuttle ferry boat across the swan River and short historical trail walk to the zoo. The keepers have done a great job with lots to see squeezed into a small park.

Perth Zoo jump on the ferry from Barrack St. Jetty across the Swan to South Perth and you’ll discover Perth Zoo. With great breeding program (the Orang-utan’s being the best) there is an abundance of both native and international animals. If you want to get even closer to the animals experience one of Perth Zoos Close Encounters.
