    This year our Melbourne's Zoo was a bit down compared with some previous years (before the COVID-19 government's events and restrictions...) However it still enjoyable place to visit, especially for children...

    Great zoo, a petting area would be great for the kids . Also there definitely needs to be more food options, and better options. It's currently very limited, only caters to certain tastes and not amazing food. However, the reason for going to the zoo, the animals and enclosures, are awesome.

    I'm 67. 60 years ago the Melbourne zoo was a fabulous zoo to see exotic animals and experience the wildlife. Then zoos became terrible places instead they reformed and made the day exhibitions so large that the only way to know what is in their is to look at the picture and read the signs. Now your lucky if you see anything except butterfly and elephant with a few monkeys thrown in and a plethora of educational material lining the tracks for education of children and denigrating the existence of people. I'm not the only one who will never be back. I heard a man with children in tow pushing a pram complaining loudly that just pushing a pram and walking the children was not why they came to the zoo. THEY CAME TO SEE ANIMALS
