See Victoria’s marine life at the Wild Sea exhibit, featuring penguins, fur seals, sharks and seahorses. Journey around the globe to the African savanna and watch graceful giraffes and zebras graze among their open-air enclosures. Throughout your visit, learn how the zoo’s conservation efforts are working to protect endangered species worldwide

Monkey around as you observe orangutans from an elevated walkway that crisscrosses their treetop hangouts, and watch ringtail lemurs at play on Lemur Island.

It was nice experience to visit Melbourne Zoo with family specially with my little Son. He enjoyed it..! Only thing a little too much waiting time to see some spots like Butterflies area.

The zoo never received my payment and so I had to pay again for entry!! The zoo experience was good but not Viator. I would advise people to book directly through the zoo NOT with Viator.
Great day once we got in

Lots of excited kids rushing about. Saw elephants feeding. Otters were a delight too. Staff helpful and friendly. Good areas for little ones to play and let off steam. Loved the Merry go round which seemed the same as when I was a child 70 years ago.

They charged nearly double the rate compared to what the zoo charge when booking directly through them.
