  • It has all of the big ticket items but the ability to view some of them isn’t fantastic. Other zoos in Australia and internationally have better vantage points. Other zoos also offer feeding times...  more »
  • Perth Zoo is conveniently located and while on the smaller side we found it to be a valuable and fun experience. Comparing it to recent visits to Taronga in Sydney, we found the accessibility and...  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.
