  • 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...

  • Great day out! Spent a few hours here, beautiful windy and shady pathways… nicely kept enclosures and animals for a bit of entertainment and education … price was good as under 16 year olds were free....  more

  • 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…
  • 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.
