What can’t you miss at the Perth Zoo?

Mainly, you can’t miss Perth Zoo’s animal exhibits- it is home to over 200 species brought from all around the world. Observing them interact and play with each other is a very thrilling part of the visit.

Another sensational experience at Perth Zoo is when the zookeepers feed the animals.  I recommend you check out what activities are prepared for your visiting day, so you don’t miss them- very interesting!

In “The Children’s Zoo,” kids are allowed to feed and pet various animals in a barnyard such as alpacas, donkeys, sheep, goats, or prairie dogs. They will never forget this experience.

To complete your fun-filled day, children can also enjoy the ride of insect carousel and play on  Nature Trek bridges & walkways.
