Book tickets

All members and visitors, of all ages (including babies) will now need a pre-booked ticket to enter the zoo. This applies on weekdays, weekends, public holidays and school holidays. Member tickets are not transferable.

We are open every day 9am – 5pm (last entry 3.30pm)

Tickets are available to book 30 days in advance. All visitors, including Zoo Members and 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, your tickets are free but will still need to be booked. You will need to present both your Zoo Membership card and your pre-booked zoo ticket at the gate.
