Welcome to Perth Zoo

All visitors participating in a Close Encounter will be required to wear a face mask. This precautionary biosecurity measure is based on best practice veterinary advice, your cooperation helps to keep our animals safe and healthy!

You’ll have plenty of time to get the perfect tortoise selfie when you get up-close-and-personal with some of the Zoo’s longest-lived residents, the Galapagos Tortoises. In fact, this species lives longer than almost anything else in the world! At fifty years of age, our boys are still tortoise teenagers.

You’ll be heading inside the exhibit, right up to the prehistoric-looking tortoises, and learning all about them as you entice them with a snack or two.
