Welcome to Perth Zoo

The Perth Zoo Master Plan has been developed to create more magical wildlife moments for you while giving our animals more room to roam. It is based on cutting edge design and innovative concepts used at international zoos which will allow you to delve further into our world than ever before. It will ensure Perth Zoo continues to be a world-class zoo, now, and into the future. 

A Zoo that moves with you!

Perth Zoo is a world leading conservation zoo, but it is vital that we don’t stand still. That’s why we've developed this master plan to create your future zoo, a zoo that moves with you.

This is a long-term plan for our special Zoo site in South Perth, and will guide what happens here for 20 years. Perth Zoo is a
sanctuary, a school, a wildlife dating agency, a nursery, a hospital, scientific institution and your local wilderness. We want to create new experiences to share this with you.
 
We're excited about moving forward. We’re excited to be planning a zoo that moves with you.
