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! Head in to our new Lion Gorge experience, where you’ll come face-to-face with our magnificent African Lion brothers! You’ll encounter tigers, monkeys, elephants, Orang-utans, and more. Head down the bush track to see unique Australian wildlife, then submerge yourself in our underwater world to see Victoria’s little Penguins and Australian Fur Seals.
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.
Children under 16 years of age receive free entry every weekend, during Victorian Government school holidays and on Victorian public holidays.
