Perth Zoo

Zoo in Central Perth

Part of the fun is getting to this zoo – ferry across the Swan River from Elizabeth Quay Jetty to Mends St Jetty (every half-hour) and walk up the hill. Zones include Australian Bushwalk (kangaroos, emus, koalas, dingos), Reptile Encounter (all those Aussie snakes you want to avoid), peaceful Australian Wetlands (black swans, brolgas, blue-billed ducks) and the usual international animals from giraffes and lions to elephants and orangutans. Another transport option is bus 30 or 31 from Elizabeth Quay Bus Station.
