Owner description: Located just minutes from Perth City, Perth Zoo is a convenient and beautiful way to meet Australia's incredible wildlife. Ever wanted to immerse yourself in the Aussie outback but have Asia's stunning rainforests and Africa's wild savannah right around the corner? Perth Zoo, with over 1500 animals and some of the most beautiful gardens in Western Australia, is your ultimate day out. Open every day of the year, Perth Zoo inspires and directs all work to save wildlife. Go for a bushwalk and discover the best of Australia's wildlife including koalas, emus, wallabies, kangaroos and our enormous saltwater crocodile, Simmo. Go for a safari through the African Savannah with rhinoceros, giraffe and lions or delve into the Asian Rainforest and meet elephants, Red Pandas, tigers, otters and a colony of endangered Sumatran Orangutans. You can explore at your own pace or take advantage of the many Zoo docent volunteers who have a myriad of stories to tell and help unlock some of the hidden secrets of the Zoo. With at least half a day needed to see the Zoo, we recommend a full day to make your experience the best it possibly can be! The carousel, wagon hire, zebra car rides, keeper presentations, free electric BBQ's, picnic tables and cafe make the experience all the more worth it. For the more adventurous get up close and book a daily Eye to Eye experience - you might feed a giraffe, pat a rock wallaby or meet our quokka!

Perth zoo is an amazing place. The care for the animals is evident as is the emphasis on conservation. The grounds are well maintained, easy for wheels chairs but their are a couple of slopes. However, there is a small car that can take you around for a tour which you need to book. You can have a picnic or enjoy their food.

Easy to travel, free space for animals, lot of animals. But you cant touch or take pictures with them free of charge. Free keeper presentations.
There are several Eye-to-Eye with animals, for close encounters with animals to touch and take pictures with them. But its very expensive.
Food inside are very expensive.

Visiting in the afternoon, the animals weren't active. Kangaroos were hardly seen, and the only 3 koalas were just hanging on the trees and sleep. Did not manage to take any pic with the animals. Too bad.

I went with my mum and two little kids and a teenager. It was a quick trip to see a few animals as the parking was very very expensive for only a short amount of time..
It was overall a good experience the young ones enjoyed themselves. The animals all looked healthy and happy and well feed.
I was in a wheelchair which did make it sometimes a little difficult as the path in some areas ie the safari area was not really suited for it and with many areas up hills we did miss some animals.
Overall tho it was a nice time, we will go back but next time may get a taxi so to avoid parking.
