Good zoo. Reasonable enclosures as far as a zoo goes. Good variety of creatures. Easy to walk - but long. Especially enjoyed the nocturnal exhibit. A bit pricey but it seems everything is in WA. Many places for kids to see clearly without being picked...More

Hi. You are not allowed to feed the animals in Perth Zoo. But it is a fantastic place to visit. Well worth going. But go to Caversham Wildlife Park to interact with animals. Well worth a visit. Enjoy.
