    Clean and well kept zoo and the animals look health and happy. The only issue I have is there are too little animals in comparison to people. Most exhibits only have 2 animals per cage, sometimes you can’t see them cause they’re resting. But at least the animals are not stressed. The ticket price is also quite expensive. There are lots of families having picnics in the area too. Overall, nice place to visit, but there are better places to get the animal viewing experience if that’s what you want.

    Saw lots of great animals! Parking ticket for 5H but no elephants? I recommend coming early as school holidays makes parking all full.Although a great place to visit with family!

    Plenty to do at Melbourne Zoo. We tried to get to every exhibit and it took us about 4 hours all up. Exhibits are great! Enjoyed the Meerkats, Giraffes and Gorilla Rainforest the best! Elephants were great as well but they are moving to Werribee soon into a much larger facility.

    Really enjoy the zoo, but it’s disappointing when you get to the main animals and there not there or hiding. I understad the animals need space but if you’re going to pay the money to see the animals you expect more. I always find the zoo is exciting but becomes under-wellming sometimes. Also kids in prams are constantly removed and shown animals. Mayne a pram viewing area could be established?

    Visited 29/01 Always an easy way to entertain the kids. We get great value from our membership! The water sprayers dotted around the zoo were very appreciated on a hot day. Go soon if you want to see the teeny tiny meerkat pups 😍
