Owner description: Journey through a world of wildlife in the heart of Melbourne. Over 250 species from around the world can be found in the beautiful setting of Melbourne Zoo, just five minutes from the city centre. Stroll through the lush Asian and African rainforests, Australian bushland and even underwater! Walk where tigers roam and monkeys swing from tree to tree. See eye-to-eye with the Orang-utans in their special elevated exhibit, explore the Trail of Elephants and then head down the bush track to see unique Australian wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, wombats and emus. Submerge yourself in our underwater world to see Victoria's iconic Little Penguins, Australian Fur Seals and more! Meet the Keeper: Hear our expert keepers give daily talks about the animals in their care. Close-up Encounters: Book a close-up encounter with one of our animals for a great photo opportunity. Melbourne Zoo is also the proud winner of the Victoria Tourism Awards RACV People’s Choice category, voted by Victorians as their Favourite Metro Attraction in both 2015 and 2016!

“Fun for all ages”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

I love animals so of course I like all zoos and wildlife parks, but Melbourne Zoo is one of my favourite but it takes all day. My advice is plan on having lunch there.

“Finally. A kookaburra”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

It's harder than I thought to take a good photo of the iconic Australian wild life so I decided to make a quick trip by train to the very nicely laid out Melbourne Zoo and see the animals I'd seen for such fleeting moments in the wild up close and photo ready!

Reviewed 19 March 2012

While it doesn't have the views of Sydney's zoo, Melbourne zoo is well worth a look
