Looking for a fun family day out? Perth Zoo is open every-day-of-the-year just five minutes from the Perth CBD. You will need at least half-a-day to see everything we have to offer but we recommend a full day to make the most of your visit. Whether it be a family day out, school holiday visit, birthday party, close encounter or being part of a zookeeper program, you are sure to have fun! The Scaly Mates and Bush Buddies Eye to Eye is an ideal close encounter for families of young children or for anyone packing as much into your visit as you can.
