  • The Perth Zoo is a much-loved feature of the South Perth social landscape. The Zoo is about a 15-minute walk from Mends St Jetty. The Zoo is quite large, it's 17 ha (41 acres). The Zoo is well-known.....  more

  • Great to see animals tho not many it’s still a good family day out. Grounds wet and slippery only letdown when eating lunch and having soggy grass.

  • We had the best time today at Perth Zoo. My family of four were granted entry using our Melbourne Zoo membership. We then waited three minutes before a zebra cart was ready to take us on a personal guided tour costing only $18! Pauline was the perfect tour guide. We would definitely recommend to see Perth Zoo if you’re holidaying with your family.
  • Perth Zoo has a feel I've come to love. Seeing the things that have stayed relatively the same for decades is quite nostalgic. The staff are super helpful and friendly. It was really awesome to experience the giraffe feeding. Great food and coffee vans around the picnic area. I'll be back again to book an experiences with other animal's. There aren't many Zoos in the world where you can get so up close to the animal's
  • Another beautiful day at the zoo, can't wait for the new board walk to be completed in the aviary. Finally opened after covid 19 ya!! But one has to book online the day u want to visit and show them the confirmation email at the gate To get in. Simple process and not had to get a booking. Great little zoo, and it is great value for money to get the annual pass for around $80 which give you unlimited entries to the zoo for a year. The zoo is very centrally located just a beautiful ferry ride across the river from Elizabeth Quay to South Perth . There are always improvements being made to the zoo, with the most recent expansion of the Lion enclosure. There are theme days and movie night hosted by the zoo which are great fun for families.
  • This zoo was really fun and a nice experience overall. The animals are so cute and the staff were fun and happy to share their knowledge whenever applicable. I'm not a zoo person, I went with my family; but I was pleasantly surprised on how much I enjoyed myself. If you're in Perth, I definitely suggest going here. I've attached a galapagos tortoise pic because it was cute 🥺
  • Compared to world class zoos like Singapore's one, this one is still pretty good. Best thing is that it's clean and the environment is lovely. Great place to bring your kids even to just hang out on the lawns and have some ice cream. Been to some real bad zoos and Perth zoo does have standard.
