National Zoo & Aquarium

Get up close and personal with some of the world’s most amazing creatures at the National Zoo & Aquarium, one of the top 10 animal attractions in Australia*

The National Zoo & Aquarium is particularly unique as it features a combined aquarium, metropolitan zoo and an easily walked open-range section plus the AdventureLand playground which features a total of 55 activities including various sized fibreglass animal sculptures for children to explore and play on.

Our recently introduced Awesome Roarsome and African Savannah Safari tours feature the chance to get up close and personal to some of our favourite residents. Get face to face with a dangerous carnivore on the Awesome Roarsome tour or stand in awe of our gentle giants on the African Savannah Safari.
