Perth Zoo was opened in 1898. Then it was just basicly an oval park, with beautiful plants and flowers, that had live music every Saturday.

107 years later, the Perth Zoo is now a place where the community can come together and learn about animals and nature, and how we can all make a difference in preserving them, and their fragile way of life.

Perth Zoo has had a major face lift in the last 10 years, to upgrade its facilities in order to better provide for the animals that make their home there. The Zoo is also laid out now, to take you inside the world of the animals. Theres an Australia Walkabout, that features all of Australias most famous animals and wildlife. Theres the Asian Rainforest, where you can find Elephants, Orangutans, and Tigers to just name a few. The African Safari is filled with Giraffes, Rhinos, Lions, Cheetas, and Baboons, plus much more. Theres giant crocs , big snakes, ugly lizards, tropical birds, and i have only named 11 of the 1800 animals, and 230 species that are housed with the Zoo walls.

A most pleasant experience, with plenty of photo opps. For more about the Perth Zoo. Visit the following link to their website. Perth Zoo
