Ensure you take a reusable water bottle, do not purchase water at the concession stands to fill it; there are drinking taps to grab a quick drink, you can also refill your reusable bottles there free of charge. These can be found at multiple sites across the zoo for you. Take your hat, sunnies and some sunblock; sun in Australia hits different and a hat can make all the difference across the warmer days we have. Some snacks are also a plus, the food and drinks at the zoo are expensive and tbh not really a viable option if you have a family. My last trip a salad and a soft drink cost me $23. I find the zoo to be most enjoyable as a solo outing, if that's an option. This way you can walk around at your own leisure, some things may interest you more than others. This gives you free agency to double back to some things if you'd like to. Grab the free map as well, it has keeper talk times as well as all amenities you may need. Definitely check out the Zen Garden, it's absolutely amazing.

Amazing Zoo. Grandsons and Grandparents had a great time. Getyourguide Covid instructions are out of date so Grandkids were needlessly submitted For Covid RAT tests. Adults are checked for Covid Vaccination status. The kind entry kiosk receptionist did seem to take much longer to process the voucher than for people holding online passes purchased directly from the Melbourne Zoo. The venue may be less crowded during weekdays, but it was a beautiful day in Melbourne and being a Saturday, the crowds were immense. Still glad we attended. The animals appear to be wonderfully cared for and housed.

We have not been to the Zoo for several years and went for my Grandsons birthday. The growth and depth of the foliage on the trees, shrubs and particularly the bamboo was amazing. It set the scene and atmosphere for the animals we saw. It would compare with the many great Zoos around the world that we have visited. It made me very proud the be a Melbournian.
