Went here with some friends and their kids, had a good day, and most of the animals have nice big enclosures. Perth zoo also do a lot of conservation work, and try to help stopping extinction of several WA species.

Decided to attend a special event at night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The atmosphere was electric and the animals entertaining... There was an additional attraction of dinosaurs, that moved and groaned that added to the enjoyment.

Quiet expensive, especially the food and drink. Many of the major exhibits have gone or not available. The Crocodile died and has not been replaced, the Giraffes and Zebras were not available and many creatures were unable to be seen because of the dense vegetation....More

The grandkids loved the dinosaur exhibition, and everyone loved the elephant show. However the orang-utan show was a bit disappointing as none could be easily seen.

We visited the Perth Zoo on a day that was 38- 40 degrees Centigrade, probably not the best temperature to go to the zoo as many of the animals were hiding from the heat. Other than that, we went when Perth Zoo was having it's...More

Yes there is a cafe and restaurant but I would take a picnic as there are so many places to sit and enjoy the sunshine.

Hi. You are not allowed to feed the animals in Perth Zoo. But it is a fantastic place to visit. Well worth going. But go to Caversham Wildlife Park to interact with animals. Well worth a visit. Enjoy.
