Melbourne Zoo


Melbourne Zoo

Over 250 species from around the world can be found in the beautifully landscaped settings 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 Orang-utans in their special elevated exhibit, explore the Trail of Elephants, and then head down the bush track to see unique Australia wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, wombats and emus. Submerge yourself in our underwater world to see Victoria’s iconic Little Penguins and Australian Fur Seals.

There is something new to see and do each season at Melbourne Zoo. Our new Lion Gorge experience will have you come face-to-face with our magnificent African Lion bachelor group. Lion presentations are daily at 1.20pm, when the three lion brothers share lunch. As a part of our Lion Gorge experience, you’ll also see our new African Wild Dog pack settling into their new home, as well as be amazed by the critically endangered Philippines Crocodile.

Let the kids free at Growing Wild, a world-first exhibit focused on creating play opportunities and nurturing an early love of nature. The exhibit is filled with animals, sculptures, tunnels and sounds, so kids can scramble, crawl and climb or stand look-out like a meerkat. Get up close to our irresistible Ring-tailed Lemurs inside Melbourne Zoo’s walk-through Lemur Island exhibit! This new multi-million dollar experience is specially designed to bring visitors and lemurs together in the same space, enabling you to get closer to our lemurs than ever before.

Zoo keeper talks and feeding times are a great opportunity for visitors to find out more about the fascinating world of wildlife and the conservation programs Melbourne Zoo supports.

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

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!
