Melbourne Zoo

Parks and Gardens

You won’t believe how many animals there are at Melbourne Zoo.

Over 320 species from around the world can be found in the beautiful natural setting just five minutes from the city centre. There’s always something new to enjoy.

Stroll through the lush Asian and African rainforests, Australian bushland and even underwater.

Walk where tigers roam and monkey swing from tree to tree. See eye-to-eye with 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 koala, kangaroo, wombat and emu. Submerge yourself in the underwater world to see Victoria’s iconic little penguin and Australian fur seal.

Keeper talks and feeding times are great opportunities for visitors to find out even more about the fascinating world of wildlife and the conservation programs Melbourne Zoo supports in the wild.

Children under 16 years of age receive free entry every weekend, during Victorian Government school holidays and on Victorian public holidays.
