Melbourne Zoo reviews
Went there during our Christmas break, worth a visit when in Melbourne. Great for travellers and tourists more »
Always a great day at Melbourne Zoo. Walking around is so relaxing and there are many great animals to see. The zoo is very well maintained and the staff & volunteers are lovely and informative. The..... more »
Great place for kids. Always a pleasure to visit and see the animals. The zoo is maintained very well. Long weekends are usual very busy and it is better to arrive early to avoid long queues. The cafes offer limited variety of food and prices are moderate to high. Watch out for events and keeper's talks - these are generally very good.
It's perfect for place to spend with your kids over the weekend. It usually takes about 3-4 hours to visit all the animals. The entrance ticket is about $48. If you are a student or senior citizen you'll get concession. There are lot of food places inside. You are allowed to take your own food as well from outside but make sure of not feeding it to animals
