Positives - lots of variety of animals to see, plenty of shade areas, lots of one way areas to make it easy to see where to go. Cheap and easy parking with staff directing you at 10am, got a text the night before that carpark will fill early

Negatives - only saw 1 tiger and no lions. Not enough bins or working hand sanitiser stations, not enough seating. No attempt at social distancing / mask wearing in indoor areas or trying to enforce this. Ruined by ignorant adults with zero situational awareness stopping in middle of walkways or parking prams in unruly places or taking photos in weird locations and holding up a queue of people behind them. Waited 40 minutes for a coffee collectively between ordering and waiting for it to be made. The park was clearly overloaded so maybe cap the amount of visitors that can attend daily unless the zoo values $$$ over enjoyment.

Have gone to many zoos across the world, the layout for this one is quite good. Do yourself a favour and go to this zoo in the middle of a school term when it's not as busy and hopefully you can avoid ignoramuses

My 2 year old thoroughly enjoyed the children's area, and the interactive areas throughout the zoo. The little water area, we had to carry her away, she was having the time of her life, and the tunnels in the meerkat area. She also loved watching the seals while they were driving. My husband liked the children's area, as it was a great place to sit, though he would have like air-condition. I loved the zoo has a whole, it was sad that some were unable to be seen, but can't complain about what I did see. I wished that the $10 deal with the drinks were better advertised and the food portions were bigger for the price asked. But overall enjoyed everything but the walking! lol.

Most of the Melbourne zoo comprises large enclosures, replete with exquisite gardens, serene lagoons, and natural features, connected by attractive pathways, surrounded by lush trees and shrubs. Some of the enclosures are unique—such as the opportunity to experience close encounters with lemurs and giant tortoises or to observe the seals from both above and below the water.

Over recent decades, the zoo has, appropriately, shifted from smaller enclosures, teeming with many animals, to fewer large, natural enclosures that enable the animals to rest, to explore, to enrich, and even to shield themselves from the public. But perhaps the zoo has failed to reconcile the goal to support the welfare of animals with the need to satisfy the curiosity of patrons. That is, although the zoo is stunning and the enclosures are large, the number and visibility of animals has perhaps plummeted too far. Unlike previous decades, the public can no longer observe bears, deer, bison, large hippos, servals, African wild dogs, binturongs, cheetahs, ocelots, mandrills, aardvarks, chimps, and many other animals that had previously occupied the zoo. The diversity of birds has also diminished. The level of information about animals has also subsided.

With no indication on the website, the kangaroo exhibit was closed without explanation on the website, being redesigned for summer. The koala exhibit was also empty, with a bunch of traffic cones in the centre of the exhibit, without any explanation anywhere. Many of the animals were also hiding out of sight and there were lots of loud schoolchildren.
Especially for the coming months, I wouldn't recommend this for tourists looking to see iconic Australian wildlife.
As for the loud children, perhaps the zoo could organise quiet days once a month or week where access is only for adults and teens who can keep their volume under control?

We'd heard that the Zoo had reopened and that, with restrictions on visitor numbers, it was uncrowded and "just like visiting your own private zoo". Upon arrival at about 10.30 on a Monday morning, the car park was already very full. Parking is very reasonable at $2 for about 5 hours but the challenge was to find a machine that worked.
We had booked online and printed our tickets assuming that entry would be quick with staff screening tickets. That wasn't happening and we had to join one of the queues at the two booking windows. We waited for about 15 minutes with only one queue moving and eventually crossed to the other queue. As we finally entered the zoo, a staff member appeared with a scanner to get things moving.
Even with limited numbers, the place seemed very busy. Social distancing and a distinct lack of animals to view meant that we spent some time waiting to get near enough to see anything. Many exhibits were closed but the frequent signs advising "Something exciting is coming" presumably mean that there'll be a lot more to see at some point.
The biggest disappointments were the big cats. There were only two lions (both fairly sorry looking males) and one scrawny female tiger which spent it's entire time pacing and roaring mournfully. The snow leopards were beautiful but quite hard to see.
Our previous visits to the zoo have been very good so this one was disappointing. Maybe we've been spoiled by the Canberra Zoo which was great. Even the sanctuary at Currumbin was better than Melbourne's offering.

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.
Vote for the Zoo...0 out of 10.

Zoo was crowded and if you’re lucky you can see the lions eating however it is very rare. Quite often you might not see an animal on exhibit. The food is good but a bit expensive. Being a zoo member does have a lot of perks especially when the zoo is busy and discounts galore. And free entry to five interstate zoos is really good.

Very good zoo, can’t blame the animals for the poor weather. A lot of amenities and facilities. I paid $4 for a rain jacket that broke twice and I was careful wearing it . Five stars for the sustainability effort they are making.

Around 15 minutes by train from Southern cross station brings you to this place. The station is called Royal Park and is a 1 minute walk to the zoo entrance. The cost by train is around $4 (£2.00) and zoo entry is around £19.00 or $38. This can be had cheaper if you book via Booking.com and use your phone to show zoo staff the online tickets. An array of amazing animals from Koalas to Elephants. A nice large grassed area to sit and eat your lunch and a large restaurant to buy your food if you choose that option. Well worth a visit. A note that if you catch the train back to Melbourne it follows the route you came until it gets to Macauley then it goes in a tunnel until Flinders Street. Don't think you have caught the wrong one because its a circular train.

We love going to Melbourne Zoo. It has many animals, reptiles, insects that are close enough for young kids to see and yet the setup of these enclosures is quite gently arranged. There are lovely garden and grassy areas to set up a picnic, bringing your own picnic items is recommended. There are a few food choices available, however, it can be a bit pricey and long queues if it’s a busy day. Weekdays are lovely and quiet, especially in the afternoons (school groups usually leave by 2pm).
We love just going to enough lunch watching elephants! Butterfly house is a highlight for us, though it can get very warm in there. Overall, a beautiful zoo in central Melbourne, easily accessed by tram or car (small parking fee applies).
