Melbourne Zoo

Elliott Avenue, Parkville, Victoria, 3052

Journey through a world of wildlife in the heart of Melbourne.

You won’t believe how many animals are at Melbourne Zoo. Over 320 species from around the world can be found in a natural setting just five minutes from the city centre.

Stroll through lush Asian and African rainforests, Australian bushland and even underwater. Walk where tigers roam and monkeys swing from tree to tree. See eye-to-eye with Orang-utans in their special elevated exhibit, explore the Trail of Elephants, then head down the bush track to see unique Australian wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, wombats and emus. Submerge yourself in their underwater world to see Victoria's iconic Little Penguins and Australian Fur Seals.

Zoo keeper talks and feeding times are a great opportunity for visitors to find out more about the fascinating world of wildlife and the conservation programs Melbourne Zoo supports.

Children under 16 years of age receive free entry every weekend, during Victorian Government school holidays and on Victorian public holidays.

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.
