Melbourne Zoo

Melbourne Zoo

Housing more than 350 different animal species, Melbourne Zoo is a worthy stopover, in a country famous for nature conservation and interesting diversity of animals. Built in 1862, certain areas of the zoo have been preserved as historic zones, demonstrating to visitors the significant changes the zoo has undergone. Famous for its endemic inhabitants such as the kangaroo, wallaby, koala and wombat, the zoo also has elephants in the Asian Rainforest area, a gorilla exhibit, Orang-utan Sanctuary and Butterfly House. Only four kilometres from Melbourne city centre the zoo is situated in a breathtaking botanic garden setting that extends 55 acres, covers over four different ecosystems and has a biodiversity of 70,000 plant specimens.
