  • Attended the Melbourne Zoo for a roar and Snore package. The event never started until 6.30, where we were met by our hosts Ash and Catherine. We then were led into the zoo to park our cars. Then...

  • Excellent adventure…! I really enjoyed the beautiful environment and scenery! It’s a great experience to see the Australian animals. It’s better to book the ticket in advance. The price is affordable. You can either bring your lunch or buy it from several cafes in there. It takes almost a full day to visit all parts of the zoo. Highly recommended in school holidays…
  • Such a beautiful place. Good to take the kids... the animals all seem happy and healthy. Their enclosures are well kept and I love the diversity (reptiles, sea life, land animals). There is so much to see and do here. You can become a member, which gives you access to other zoos as well, which is really handy or you can get general admission which isn't expensive.
  • Best zoo I've ever been to and I've been to zoos from all across Europe and the wider world. I went on valentine's Day with my partner. This zoo has a massive variety of animals and the enclosures are large and well maintained. We were in the zoo for 4.5 hours and only saw half the animals - luckily we purchased memberships and will be visiting again next week to see the rest. The keepers are friendly and knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions. For us, the butterfly house was the highlight and was truly breathtaking. Cannot recommend highly enough, especially if you really care about the welfare of animals and love being able to see a large variety.
  • Excellent zoo with thoughtful enclosures and carefully selected plants. It was great walking through the different sections of the park. Each section is spaced out enough so that it doesn’t seem crowded. The animals generally have large open enclosures which is great to see. Nice reading about the conservation efforts of the zoo as well. Highly recommend.
  • Excellent experience with so much to explore within the zoo. It gets very busy quite quickly so be sure to arrive early. The zoo keepers were very informative and there was so much to see. Great for children with so many enclosures to see and a children's playground at one side of the zoo too. Definitely an experience to do when visiting Melbourne.
