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.

Melbourne Zoo, Melbourne Reviews
I was thoroughly impressed with the Melbourne Zoo! Wow! The zoo has been extensively redeveloped over the years and it is simply stunning to see such incredible creatures up close and in very natural environments. We took our two year old toddler who just loved the Orangutans and the Butterfly House. The giraffes and elephants are simply amazing. There are nice cool forest environments to walk through and the animals are very well cared for. They all seem healthy and content. We were also pleased with the options available for lunch with a bakery, a pizzeria, and an Asian-style and Western-style cafe. Parking was not too expensive, with the fee being $2 for 5 hours. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough. I Loved!
We have been zoo members for years and frequent Melbourne zoo. It is a great day or half day out. The grounds are great and it has changed for the better over the years. After being to a few zoos in other countries I have to say that melbourne zoo deserves a mention as well. Pack a lunch, put your walking shoes on and enjoy your day!!
NOTES: 1- avoid going middays especially on sunny days as all the animals hide from the sun. Which makes spotting them nearly impossible. 2- Buy your tickets online... Saves you from a long queue. 3- the map they hand you is actually upside down if you enter from the entrance of the Tram side... Plenty of animals and great staff... They are all willing to help you anytime and explain about the animals viewed.
Looking a bit scruffy in certain areas ... They could possibly invest in a couple of brooms and show the staff how to use them ! Numerous areas were closed off too so we didn't get to see everything despite paying for full price tickets. One of the elephant viewing areas was a huge puddle ... It wouldn't have taken a minute to clear it with one of the brooms they obviously haven't got ! The good bits are excellent but the poor bits certainly let the zoo down. The manager needs to get out the office & have a good look around !!
Wonderful zoo with lots of flora and fauna in a big open space. This zoo has lots to offer for visitors. I particularly enjoyed myself watching the giraffes, the tigers, the lions, gorillas, the ever curious meerkats and the playful hyenas. Food is moderately priced, but it would be nice to bring your own picnic n chill on the lawn. I went to the zoo again with my son on Saturday (beautiful weather!) and we were excited to see that they had a Trolls party event going on for zoo members. Members were supposed to receive an email on it, but we did not receive any email on this event. Nonetheless, we enjoyed ourselves. Plus for families who do not drive, the train station (Royal Park) is just a convenient minute’s walk from the zoo.
