Visitor Reviews

Review submitted by Barbara Mosedale August 2005

The main reason for the tourist to visit this zoo is the native Australian mammals. It is however a nice small general city zoo aimed at showing foriegn animals to the people of WA (there is a new set of African linked enclosures).

From the city centre the zoo is a short ferry ride across the Swan River and a short walk away. We visiteed it twice once shortly after arrival suffering from jet lag and at the end ogf our holiday, early in 2005.

The zoo has a good breeding record with a number of native mammals including the Numbat and Chuditch (Western Quoll), and has been central to an ambitious programme of releases into the wild. The breeding stocks of these species are not however on public display. This is definitely the place to be to see numbats, though whether you do see any is not guarrenteed, one one visity the numbat house was closed for animal care reasons and even when open seeing them is not certain, though there is a CTV link to breeding pair kept elsewhere.

Most major Australian species are represented, with a number of pleasant walk through enclosures, and some modern cages. One very memorable very large solitary salt water crocodile sticks particularly in mind.

The nocturnal house is a must – especially given the number of nocturnal Australian mammals. There are three species of quoll displayed (more than I remember seeing at Tarango for example).

Of the non-Australian displays the Orang Utans are probably the must see, with a large number in newly designed enclosures, with a good breeding record.
