The Elephants


While Perth City might seem like a bit of a jungle, it is likely you won't see a live elephant or zebra walking down the street, even if current fashion trends try to convince you otherwise.

You will however find elephants, zebras and more at our interactive and informative Perth Zoo. Great for budding zoologists, couples, families and other groups, the zoo has something for everyone.

Located at 20 Labouchere Road, South Perth, the zoo is only a five minute drive from the City Centre. You can get there by bus, train, ferry and car as well as by foot and bicycle

While you're there, be sure to check out the Sumatran tigers, orangutans and the Asian elephants. From there, it's just a short stop to marvel at the Galapagos tortoises. You can also take part in their guided walks, talks and presentations, including the "cool penguins" presentation and the "sun bears" presentation to get even more up close and personal to the local animal life.

Ticket prices are as follows:
22 per adult
11 per child
18 for senior and concession card holders
and if you are registered as a carer or a zoo friend you get in for free.

You can find out more info about suggested itineraries at www.perthzoo.wa.gov.au
