Great animals
Apr 2021
The map provided was excellent and easy to follow around the zoo...Enjoyed i particular the primates.......Only downside to the visit was the extremely poor service provided at a coffee shop ...At around 10.30 we lined up with 2 other couples to buy two coffees ...The 2 staff on duty were not paying attention to the 3 couples awaiting service and were just talking and laughing among themselves..We finally received our coffees after a 18 minute wait!!!.........Later around 12.15 we stopped at a different coffee outlet for lunch .Unfortunately the stand only had 3 packs of sandwiches and about 20 apples to choose from!!!..Very poor ....Maybe the Zoo should consider running the shops themselves rather than a giant global caterer whose staff it would seem on these occasions had little care to the zoos CUSTOMERS!

How to get angry without really trying.
Apr 2021
My wife prebooked two tickets for the next day. When we arrived by car (we are both senior citizens and unable to walk long distances), I let my wife off to meet up with our son and 2 grand daughters. After driving around aimlessly for more than 40 minutes I was unable to find a spot to park my car. I therefore left and drove home. My wife had to find her own way home by public transport.
My claim is that Melbourne Zoo knowingly over sold the tickets which precluded my obtaining a parking spot at mid day. I emailed the Zoo requesting a refund and an apology and to this date have not received either.

Roar and snore!
Jan 2021
Had and amazing Roar and Snore experience hosted by Chris and Robin. Would recommend the food, the environment, the sleeping tents, the tour and up close and personal experience with the giraffes! Wonderful for young adults and personally I think they get more out of it than the kids that you might normally think about taking to the zoo.
Stay on the next day to see the bits you still want to explore. Amazing experience can’t recommend it enough.

Great way to spend some time
Jan 2021 • Family
Always enjoy a trip to Melbourne Zoo and this time was no exception. The layout of the enclosures makes it really easy to navigate and there is plenty of room for everyone to get a good look at each viewing space. On this visit, even the food was great at the bakery! And we loved running over the hills and through the water mist near the playground.

Tip: Park around near the Railway Entrance and use that one instead of the Main Entrance - easier to find a parking spot and way less queuing.

Disappointing
Dec 2020 • Couples
Disappointing. Really needs a good clean and face lift. Feel sorry for the animals trapped there as the enclosures didn't really offer any enrichment for them. My husband and I would not visit again. We were really looking forward to our visit but wasn't to be. We also bought a hamburger and chips from Girraffe Lookout cafe and it was horrible. Spent just over $18 for that treat.

Great zoo - shame about the catering
Dec 2020
A very good general zoo - animals in general have large well maintained exhibits (which can make them hard to see). And laid out very logically so easy to make sure you see everything. Lots of messaging about conservation as well.
BUT - the food and drink is poor. At the Zoo Bakery we had the worst coffee (weak and milky) that we have had for many years. We planned to lunch on the Lakeside cafe - the website said it was open - but was closed at noon and staff member said it would not open. I know things have been difficult because of COVID but the website claimed to be up to date. We ended up with a perfectly adequate souvlaki from a stall, but not the same as difficult to find a seat in the shade

To see the animals
Nov 2020
After the protracted Covid 19 lockdown in Melbourne, my wife and I were keen to go out to various places. We decided to visit the Zoo, as our previous visit was in 2009.

The weather was nice and sunny with a top of 20 degrees. I have previously been to the two Zoos in Sydney, the Zoo in Singapore, the Zoo in Beijing (China) and the Zoo in Malaysia.

A word of caution, if anyone is interested. Melbourne Zoo requires wearing of mask and social distancing under current Covid 19 prevention measures. There is no enforcement whatsoever and around 10% of patrons did not comply with the rules.

Giraffes too tall but overall good experience
Feb 2020
We had a great time in the zoo, lots to see and do. I was happy to have my runners on because I walked a lot. The guy at the gate said that we could go into the tiger cages and hand feed the tigers because they were tame which I found out later was not true. In fact, I doubt that guy even worked there. The giraffes are way too tall to get a good look at them in the eye and some of the monkeys are really loud which really turned me off them. I think the baboons have had their faces painted with pink and blue paint to make them look more appealing which makes them look prettier but it does make you wonder what they look like in real life(see photos). I thought that I would get to see the whales like in seaworld but I din't see any at all. If you go during the day, bring some meat to throw into the cages because I was told that the zoo likes the help to cut their costs.

Like any other big zoo
May 2020
Animals mainly OK, with a few exceptions. A lot of feces in cages, but in fairness the animals may have just messed before we looked. The food was woeful and overpriced. The lawns had bindies on them, so wear shoes and take a rug if sitting on the grass. They did have the full set of creatures so to speak. Big cats, bears, lions, tigers, reptiles giraffes, apes and a few others I cannot recall and being the only place in Melbourne with these got them three stars.
