Melbourne ZooDiscover a window to the world’s wildlife.
More than 250 species from around the world can be found as you wander the picturesque gardens. Immerse yourself in the Asian rainforest where you can see the tiger cubs at play and monkeys swinging from the branches. Then take the time to stop and see eye to eye with beautiful orang-utans in their special elevated exhibit.
Meet the now famous elephant families at the award-winning trail of the elephants, and explore the Victorian coastline at the new wild sea exhibit, home to seals and penguins.
All just a short trip from Melbourne’s city centre.
