It was our kids first trip to the zoo and they absolutely loved it. There was so much to do, absolutely worth the price. The dino area was also a hit. Everything was within conveniences such as toilets, restaurants and baby change rooms. We had a great day and enjoyed the whole experience! Definitely will go again.

Great experience! The tickets were not available on the official website initially luckily I found this website. Great experience, easy and quick to get. When I got to the zoo, the voucher was scanned and verified quickly by the staff. It is a great way!

Probably one of the best Zoos around! So much to do so many animals to look at, a go-to destination when in Melbourne. Make sure you arrive there early because it’s a whole day activity so well worth the money and the gift shop is amazing and not to badly priced.
