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!

Two tonne of leathery, horned, imposing muscle wrapped around one of the gentlest natures you could find in the animal kingdom.

Head behind-the-scenes with a zoo keeper and tour the rhinoceros night quarters to see where these gorgeous behemoths spend their evenings and learn all about their individual personalities and behaviours. Memphis and Bakari both love to come and say hello – don’t worry, you’ll be armed with some of their favourite treats to thank them for their hospitality!
