Staff were very friendly and offered help with directions. There were cafes/shops scattered around the place to get food/refreshments along the way. Zoo was an incredible experience got to see some amazing animals. Butterfly section was truly an amazing scenery.

Very easy website to use. Questions are answered quickly and staff are polite in their replies, I would recommend this website for anyone looking to purchase tickets to a wide range of products, I also purchased tickets to Melbourne Aquarium, hopefully, the children enjoy the actual experience.

We loved our afternoon at Melbourne Zoo. We hadn't been for a few years so it was exciting to see all the different animals. Admission was easy. I purchased the tickets online on the way and was able to show my phone. The staff were very helpful throughout. Loved the meerkat who seemed to pose for the camera but the butterfly house will always be our favourite.
