  • Animals were looking bored to death and some wouldn’t even more an inch like the tiger. So few animals compared to other zoos around the world I’ve been to (which also cost lesser than Perth Zoo) Sugg...  more »
  • Very impressed with the zoo grounds, very well looked after. The enclosures are all about the animals (as best as that can be for animals in captivity). None of the animals appeared stressed and they ...  more »
  • As a Photographer and Animal lover I can’t visit a city and not go to the Zoo or wildlife park, it’s just not me. Before visiting I had a look at the parks map and was quite surprised at how much they...  more »

  • Great place to visit with kids. If you plan to visit often then annual card is a great value. Kids will definitely enjoy it. Talks and animal shows are scheduled through the day while you can get one on one with some animals for an additional fee. Overall really enjoyed it.
  • I would give this place 5 stars if they would bring their exotic birds and aviary section back... It was the highlight of my visits and I have no idea why it's gone. They had all sorts of owls and parrots, now only the Australian bird section remains and a small walk-in aviary with a pond. Anyway, otherwise it's a pretty great zoo that's on par with Sydney and Melbourne Zoo. Not too expensive to get in and a lot to get around and see. Bring your own food and drink though as the cafe is borderline insane pricing.
  • Absolutely brilliant day. The animals are all looked after to the highest degree. The staff seem to love what the are doing. My daughter arranged a tour in the zoo buggies for us what a fantastic idea. The gentleman that took us has such a passion for the zoo and its animals he is a credit to the zoo.
  • Best Zoo I've ever been to. Clean, well maintained and lots of attractions. Tip for Zoo goers - go early in the morning. Most animals are in the shades resting from 12 to 4PM, so you won't see much. Bring snacks and lunches with you. You can always refill your water bottles from the many water coolers around the zoo.
  • Always a good experience. It was a bit annoying that in the morning when we arrived staff were in some of the exhibits so no animals were viewable in those enclosures. We have a young child so staying later in the day is not an option. Maybe that stuff should be done before patrons arrive at 9am. Other than that, Perth Zoo is great. They have a strong breeding programme, contribute to awareness and are reasonably priced.
