The Melbourne Zoo is the oldest zoo in Australia and home to more than 320 species. Take a walk on the wild side while exploring at your own pace with this general admission ticket. 

See Victoria’s marine life at the Wild Sea exhibit, featuring penguins, fur seals, sharks and seahorses. Journey around the globe to the African savanna and watch graceful giraffes and zebras graze among their open-air enclosures. Throughout your visit, learn how the zoo’s conservation efforts are working to protect endangered species worldwide

Monkey around as you observe orangutans from an elevated walkway that crisscrosses their treetop hangouts, and watch ringtail lemurs at play on Lemur Island. Be in awe of magnificent gorillas at a special rain forest exhibit that also futures other tropical species like the fascinating pygmy hippopotamus. 

Feel the flutter of tiny wings on your skin at the enchanting Butterfly House, where butterflies may land right on you as you make your way through the lush greenhouse enclosure. At some of the zoo’s many play spaces, kids can learn what it’s like to be a zookeeper or burrow through giant tunnels to mimic the life of a meerkat.

Take a break from your exploration with a stop at one of many restaurants and cafés (own expense). Your day at the zoo is sure to leave you with a renewed appreciation of Earth’s amazing animals.

Where’s the animals

Lots of the attractions were very hard to find animals inside. But a good day out with the kids and not too busy over the holiday season.
A waste of time and money!!

Hardly any animals, especially in the predator section. Zoo keepers were also rather unfriendly. Old and not well-kept.

I loved the zoo! We arrived into Melbourne before our check in time so we spent some time at the zoo. Wonderful displays and interesting animals. You can purchase tickets at the entrance of the zoo but I prefer having my tickets in advance.
