  • My wife and I took 3 grandkids to the Monarto Zoo and all of us had a wonderful time. Our close-up views of cheetahs, giraffes and rhinos were very memorable. We enjoyed being able to walk around and....  more »
  • Day trip to Monarto Zoo. The baby rhino was the highlight, just two months old. The staff and volunteers here very good in informing us of the different animals what there there. Very popular.  more »
  • After driving past here heaps of time, we decided it was time we had a look. We are not usually fans of zoos. This zoo is however different, the animals are in big open spaces which is good to see...  more »

  • Fantastic day. Easy to get around either part walking and then a bus or in the bus. Get there for the keeper talks for different animal, this makes the experience that much better. Great seeing the larger groups of individual species and how they interact with each other. The zoo is doing fantastic conservation/breeding work. So enjoyed today with 6mth old, 2 1/2 yr old, and three adults. Wonderful, informative volunteers made the day really special. Thank we'll be back.
  • Great day, though the hot summer weather has taken its toll on the landscape. The gorilla enclosure was really good, the African section with the giraffes is my favourite and the new lion viewing enclosure, where the humans are caged, is great. The baby rhino was delightful. Well done to Monarto for their work in animal conservation.
  • We arrived around 12pm on a Saturday during the school holidays so there was a bit of a line up at the gates but they had both booths open so the line went quickly. Due to it being popular we did have to park a bit further away from the information center but it wasn't a hassle. We waited for the bus and hopped on our tour guide and bus driver were lovely and were very knowledgeable. I love that we get to go through all the enclosures and that they explain everything we pass along the way. We stayed on the bus for the whole trip and were fortunate enough to not have to switch busses to see the carnivores. We stopped off at the Giraffe enclosure on the way back and got to have a look at them along with the Tasmanian Devils up close. We also enjoyed the short walk to the Chimpanzee enclosure where it was feeding time and had a nice walk through the Yellow Footed Wallabies on the way back. Overall a fantastic day and will definitely be visiting again!
  • Great set up. As zoo members entry price wasnt a consideration. All staff and volunteers were lovely. It was a warm day and we were disappointed no water fountains available to top up drink bottles. Good picnic areas and playground.
  • My husband and I LOVED Monarto Zoo! We had a few of the animal experiences booked for the day which we thought were AMAZING! We can't wait to go back.
