Book tickets

We are open every day 9am – 5pm

All non-members, including babies, need to have a pre-booked zoo ticket before you arrive at the zoo. Zoo Members, you are no longer required to pre-book your tickets to visit. Simply scan your membership card at the zoo gate (member cards are not transferable).

Children aged 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult at the zoo and hold a pre-booked ticket, even if it's a day that kids can visit for free.

The Australian Wildlife Health Centre will be closed January 30 – Reopening July 1 2023

We are creating a whole new visitor experience, maximising the way we share our stories of wildlife patient care with you through exciting new interactive technology and face-to face experiences. Behind the scenes the hospital will be fully operational so that our veterinary team can continue the best care for our wildlife patients.

Future Vets will also close during this time, reopening as the fun, vet-themed play space our littlest visitors love.
