Swinging orangutans, lumbering elephants and playful meerkats – more than 320 species are waiting to make your acquaintance at the Melbourne Zoo. Stroll between habitats like the Wild Sea, Asian Rainforest and Australian Bush for an up-close look at creatures and critters both big and small.

Just 5 minutes from the city centre, the Melbourne Zoo – Australia's oldest – is the perfect place to step into the wild for an animal encounter you'll never forget. Watch giraffes strut across the savannah, and gaze out at a pride of lions lounging in the shade. Meet the animals that call the Land Down Under home, from eucalyptus-munching koalas and hopping kangaroos to long-legged emus and Tasmanian devils in the brush.

Walk through the Butterfly House, where vibrantly coloured native species flit and flutter around you, and get a look at the little penguins that live along Victoria's coast at the Wild Sea. Make your way along an elevated boardwalk to see the jungle habitat from an orangutan's perspective, and watch for the black and orange stripes of a stealthy Sumatran tiger between the trees.

The littlest visitors can delve into hands-on fun with interactive exhibits like Growing Wild, where they can clamber through tunnels alongside curious meerkats. At Keeper Kids, young animal lovers can learn what it's like to work behind the scenes at a zoo – maybe there's a future zookeeper in your bunch!
