Perth Zoo reviews
A wonderful and relaxing day spent at the zoo. The Covid restrictions were sensible and sensibly enforced. It was educational and I loved every minute of being there. A great way to spend a morning more »
I so much want to say good things but I was left disapointed. In short I came away sad, some of the animals looked stressed. The black cockatoos should be in their natural environment not in a tiny.... more »
Always loved the zoo but some areas need revamping and look at more coverage. Been burnt here one too many times seeking shade more »
Great place for a today out lots to see. Great photo opportunities. Fantastic for families picnic areas in the zoo grounds lots for kids to see and interact with. Zoo keepers do a fantastic job there great with the kids to very informative about the animals they do a great job. Don't miss out have a fun day out. Parking near by only a short walk.
Fun times for families and friends... many varieties animal and good events. Recommended to bring own food and do picnic with families. Parking is limited especially during school holiday or high season. Better to come early and parking fee is reasonable. Full day is only $6. Per hour rate is $2.60. Nice view and spacious place for picnic or relaxing.
The Perth Zoo is a terrific holiday or week day destination. Great place to complete.your daily exercise in a safe and secure location. Annual Friends of the Zoo passes are available at reasonable rates, allowing unlimited number of visits. When in Perth, we often go there just to have a lunch in a shady and different place surrounded by animals.
Amazing place, many animals, exhibits are well designed, most animals move around a lot, staff are friendly. Wheel chair accessible, paths are paved well however there is some uphill areas so be prepared to use your muscles while pushing a wheelchair, lockers available, plenty of toilets around the zoo, many people brought in their own food and drinks but there is a place to buy food/drinks as well. Upon entry, you get a map of the zoo. Different shows on at different times so ask staff when each show is on - the elephant session is fun - the elephant sprays water at the crowd.
great fun for families, perfect place for a holiday/weekend treat. its a wonderful experience for kids to see all the animals, my little sister (5) got to hold a snake and she was psyched. friendly staff and healthy food options in the cafe - all for a pretty reasonable price.
