Welcome to Perth Zoo

This experience is currently operating with a COVID Safe plan in place, if you’ve done this experience before, it may be a little different this time around (but no less fun!)

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!

It’s gloves-on fun as you make sure that every bird gets its fair share while the keeper chats to you about Perth Zoo’s colony and how WA penguins are unique!

The perfect animal activity for a small family, you won’t be getting wet on this experience…unless a penguin decides to express its flappy gratitude!
