About Melbourne Zoo, Melbourne

Over five thousand animals representing 320 species are housed here. Few ever report coming away from here dissatisfied. You might not get to see all the animals that there are, as different animals have different routines. But the lovely natural atmosphere provided by the beautiful gardens and the parks is quite enough for a good time. The monkey/ape exhibits are supposed to be outstanding. Kangaroos, cats and koalas have their own fans. Within the zoo, the animals actually have greater freedom of movement that the visitors do. You’re supposed to keep within the trail limits at all times. The must see exhibits include: the Orangutan Sanctuary, the African Rainforest, the Australian Outbacks and the Elephant Trail.

Fix a date with wild animals (caged, of course) when you visit Melbourne Australia. The Melbourne Zoo in Melbourne is one of the most popular places in the city and also the crowd’s favourite. The best way to explore the Melbourne Zoo is by buying the Melbourne Zoo tickets from the ticket counter. If you want to ditch the line, then you can book the Melbourne Zoo tickets, well in advance.

  • Good value for money, expansive layout to keep you busy exploring. Nice little play areas for kids. Parking was a little bit of an effort to find a spot, until they opened up one of the overflow areas, but at $2 for 5hrs it was fair.

  • Great zoo!! Gorgeous gardens and many interesting and exciting exhibits. Nice and quiet today (monday/not school hols). Take you're own lunch/drinks as food is poor and pricey.

  • One of the best things to do in Melbourne! Beautiful zoo. Well priced for a day activity. Go in nice weather. Loved the butterfly house!

  • Amazing zoo! It is very nicely planned, developed and maintained. Plenty of interesting exhibits to spend your time at. Advisable to bring your own food, maybe even for a picnic!

  • Definitely a must see if you find yourself in Melbourne. I try to visit at least once a year, and I find that each time I visit, the exhibits become more interactive. I feel like their food options could be improved upon, though you'll always find something on offer. I find the staff incredibly helpful too. One of the gorilla keepers were nearby on a recent trip and he stood and chatted with us for about 20 mins explaining the gorilla dynamics and facts about the gorillas that are currently here. Absolutely loved it.
