Went to Perth Zoo for a wedding reception which was planned really well. Spacious venue with a nice dance floor. Toilets were really clean. Staff were really friendly and quick to answer any requests..Also got to go on Merry go round and brought out some native wild life to show.
Perth Zoo is a great place to take the family for an enjoyable day out. Now is the perfect time to come to the zoo to see the dinosaurs. Its great for the kids. Make sure you book ahead if you want to go on the giraffe experience. Also consider booking a zebra car tour if you have kids and or have difficulty walking around. If you are likely to visit the zoo multiple times in a year definitely get a membership. Very cost effective once you have been 4 times.
Better than expected. A well maintained zoo with a good variety of animals, including what I’m assuming what most people come for, the Australian natives. Nice to see that they showed history of how the animals were treated when the zoo first opened compared to now. Also great to see the care and attention they pay to animal welfare, and protecting endangered species from future extinction.
Perth zoo has been going for years now and its still going strong. I love animals especially cats!!! (Meow). If you want to brings the kids somewhere bring them here its perfect for the little ones!!!
Beautiful grounds but could do with a little better upkeep. Also enclosures could be improved a little. For the price you pay compared to other better zoo's around Australia I personally won't be back for another 10yrs, if that. Pretty sad my family got around it in 4hrs including lunch.
