  • Average Zoo. I had much higher expectations. There is nice elephant section which was really big and I could see many happy elephants in there. Lots of space for groups, perfect place for picnic too.
  • I was expecting a bit more of wildlife but just found one tiger, few elephants, giraffes and zebras.. If you like bird watching then you should visit this place. So many different birds. The zoo is pretty big so do carry a bottle or two of water. It took me an entire day to cover everything.
  • Great place for a family day out, especially with young children. Good is reasonably priced but we always take a picnic lunch. Recommend setting aside a whole day because it's pretty big and you don't want to be rushing through.
  • Love the Melboure Zoo. Its well kept, the staff are lovely and the paths are so much fun to ho down to visit all the attractions. Bringing my little one in the morning to see all the animals waking up and starting their day is wonderful.
  • Fantastic zoo. Animal enclosure are great size and clean. Animals seem relaxed and happy. Getting close enough to see everything especially with kids is a huge bonus here!

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
