The most amazing zoo! Great range of animals. Lots of room for each of the species. Very easy to navigate. Staff are always friendly and knowledgeable. Really enjoy their environmental campaigns to encourage people to rethink purchases. Great day for young and old
A shadow of it's former self. The lunatics have taken over the asylum to be honest. I have been coming to the zoo since I was a toddler and used to love it. Now there are far more plants than animals and it is more like a botanical gardens than a zoo. We took our 3 yo there and I was shocked at what has been done to it. Before going I was talking it up to my partner who has not seen it before as how world class and great it was. The Lion enclosure used to be this open range area where lions freely moved around whilst visitors could walk over their open area via an enclosed bridge. That is now replaced by a small caged area with depressed looking lions just sitting there with no room to move. There used to be polar bears, black bears, pandas, other bears, but not anymore. The elephant enclosure was good but was heavily laid out with buildings and shops pretending to be in Indonesia. What was worse was what they did to the Australian Fauna enclosure, One used to be able to go into an open area and get close to the Wallaby's and Kangaroos, that has been replaced by tiny little cages with very depressed kangaroos who have no where to move freely as they used to. Whomever is in charge of destroying what used to be a world class institution needs to be given their marching orders. It is a waste of time and money to visit.
Great day out with the family! We went to the Melbourne Zoo this morning & thought it was fantastic! The exhibits are so well laid out, the scenery was fantastic. By far one of the best zoos we've been to. Will definitely come back.
This is a must see if in Melbourne especially for the kids. I can not think of a single negative about this place. We visited on Easter Sunday, although it was super busy it really didn't feel that way. So much effort has been put into the animal exhibits. It is just a beautiful place to visit. A strong focus on education of visitors into being more environmentally conscious. Staff were all very friendly and welcoming. Food was not over the top expensive and was really yummy. Could definitely spend more then one day here exploring. We will definitely visit again when we are in Melbourne.
Always great. Lovely staff and volunteers. Good variety of animals and information is top notch. Does make me wonder how happy the larger animals are. The tiger just walks a small route every single time we've been. Doesn't seem right.
