  • We went on a very hot day, in the middle of the day and so many animals we hiding from the heat. We noticed a lot of volunteers around the enclosures and so were able to ask questions. The Sun Bears w...  read more »
  • Parking was OK, but no disabled spots available. Zoo is quite hilly and it was hard to walk around it, the little zebra bus can only stop on the tarmac roads so there is still a walk to get to see the...  read more »
  • Went with the Grandkids recently to see the animals and whatever was on offer. Having been around for over 60 years I have seen the Zoo evolve from the bad old days of animals in concrete cages to now...  read more »
  • The Perth Zoo was undergoing some renovation when we went, but it still had a great variety of exhibits and fun things to see. Well worth a day trip with the family.
  • Lots of space in the open area for picnic. Lovely to walk through all the trees and plants. Sad to see such a small space allocated to many animals though. .tigers. .. elephants... dingos... lion. .. it's too small!!
  • Great day out for the whole family with so many animals to see. It's a little sad to see that a couple of the animals have very small enclosures (the tiger in particular, like seriously? It can't even run around) but overall it's an awesome day out. Be careful with parking though - there isn't much of it.
  • Parking - can be tough on school holidays but otherwise ok Fee- 30 adults, 20 kids 3-4 hrs round trip Inc stop for lunch Some excellent exhibits and some dates ones now. I liked the penguins, meerkats and the orangutans The big cats were not a great setting and hard to see.... Id have like to see more large crocodiles in better exhibits, updated nocturnal house, North American animals ( wolves, beavers ). Really great tree ranges and settings, love the bamboo and we went while there was a dinosaur special. .. that was great for the kids.
  • Lovely little Zoo - with yearly membership worth it when you consider it enables access to other government Zoos in Australia (e.g. Taronga Zoo)
