Book tickets

All visitors of all ages (including babies) will need a pre-booked ticket to enter the zoo. This applies on weekdays, weekends, public holidays and school holidays. Zoo Members are not required to pre-book their tickets and can simply scan their membership card at the gate.

We are open every day 9am – 5pm

Tickets are available to book 30 days in advance. All non-members, including babies, need to have a pre-booked zoo ticket before you arrive at the zoo.

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.

Zoo Members, you are no longer required to pre-book your tickets to visit. Simply scan your membership card at the zoo gate. Non-member visitors are still required to pre-book online before visiting (member cards are not transferable).
