You normally go to a zoo and see poor animals in captivity, NOT ONE animal at this wonderful zoo is in captivity, they are all living their best life as nature intended.
We were so amazed at the dedicated, caring, passionate staff and how they talk about their animals.
What a wonderful place, well done to you all.
Wonderful space to play

The zoo was a wonderful experience for the kids aged 3 and twenty months. Plenty of space ,wonderful gardens and all sorts of environments to run,crawl,climb and play.
Oh and active ,mostly healthy looking animals who were active in the cool of the morning. The only sad bit was the pacing tiger who looked agitated.

Beautiful Solo Zoo Experience
Felecia_B, 18-11-2022
This is my first time here in Melbourne and was so excited to go to a zoo where I didn't feel bad because the animals didn't seemed to be stressed out. They were free to roam around naturally and not feel restrained in any way. It was rewarding to see this throughout the zoo.

Zoo is fun for small children

The Melbourne Zoo is a great place to visit with small children, who love the animals. The lions and the gorillas are favorites. The baby elephants are captivating. The animal enclosures welcome visitors, the animals appear to be content. The seals are nature's clowns, and the penguins are the acrobats of the sea. Please check on ticket availability before you visit the Zoo. By the way, access to Melbourne Zoo is convenient, you can take the tram, train or drive.
Amazing children areas
Catherine C, 09-11-2022
My 2 year old thoroughly enjoyed the children's area, and the interactive areas throughout the zoo. The little water area, we had to carry her away, she was having the time of her life, and the tunnels in the meerkat area. She also loved watching the seals while they were driving. My husband liked the children's area, as it was a great place to sit, though he would have like air-condition. I loved the zoo has a whole, it was sad that some were unable to be seen, but can't complain about what I did see. I wished that the $10 deal with the drinks were better advertised and the food portions were bigger for the price asked. But overall enjoyed everything but the walking! lol.
Zootopia for families

Very good zoo, can’t blame the animals for the poor weather. A lot of amenities and facilities. I paid $4 for a rain jacket that broke twice and I was careful wearing it . Five stars for the sustainability effort they are making.
Stunning exhibits—but has the pendulum swung too far?
simonmA1122PU, 08-01-2023
Most of the Melbourne zoo comprises large enclosures, replete with exquisite gardens, serene lagoons, and natural features, connected by attractive pathways, surrounded by lush trees and shrubs. Some of the enclosures are unique—such as the opportunity to experience close encounters with lemurs and giant tortoises or to observe the seals from both above and below the water.

Over recent decades, the zoo has, appropriately, shifted from smaller enclosures, teeming with many animals, to fewer large, natural enclosures that enable the animals to rest, to explore, to enrich, and even to shield themselves from the public. But perhaps the zoo has failed to reconcile the goal to support the welfare of animals with the need to satisfy the curiosity of patrons. That is, although the zoo is stunning and the enclosures are large, the number and visibility of animals has perhaps plummeted too far. Unlike previous decades, the public can no longer observe bears, deer, bison, large hippos, servals, African wild dogs, binturongs, cheetahs, ocelots, mandrills, aardvarks, chimps, and many other animals that had previously occupied the zoo. The diversity of birds has also diminished. The level of information about animals has also subsided.
This Zoo is OK

We visited the zoo in a busy Boxing Day. Still plenty of room and easy cheap parking. Baby elephant was very cute some other exhibits were pretty ordinary. Sushi sushi for lunch was also average.
