Founded in 1862, Melbourne Zoo is Australia's oldest and the third oldest in the world. It has changed greatly over the years, replacing the old barred cages and pits with more animal friendly enclosures. The zoo is divided into bio-climatic zones using landscape immersion to help animals acclimatize to the Australian environment and is at the forefront of the captive Lowland Gorilla breeding program. The butterfly house, lion park and primate enclosure are among the highlights. In summer locals flock to the twilight jazz sessions.
My family was very thrilled about going to Melbourne Zoo. I liked ALL the animals especially the elephants, meerkats, gorillas and the snow leopards. I couldn’t believe the size of “BONG SU- Only male Asian elephant in Melb. Zoo” weighs just under 5 tonnes (that’s a lot.) Food and Atmosphere was fantastic. A zoo I will truly remember.
Nice peaceful place to spend a quiet afternoon,in autumn, with your family.
My daughter loved it very much. Kept talking about it!
She was the one who INSISTED we go visit this zoo.
Have to take the tram bus and walked across a field where two school teams were playing rugby. Took a photo of Monash University.
Nice memories on our trip to the zoo.
The Melbourne Zoo is a great attraction and all ages enjoy the great and enoyable range of animals. I recomend the Melbourne zoo for a day out. They have great food there aswell for lunch. Scared your little kids won't enjoy the big animals? well don't be, the butterfly cage is a beautiful and friendly exibition. the butterflies will come to you. there are also birds, whisch are very bright and colourful.And if your in for a big fright go see the goowy oowy snakes. You are guarenteed to find an animal you will enjoy!
If you will be disappointed, when you should travel the zoo.

There are some problems at the zoo.
Firstly, We have been there during at 11~15:00 PM. But this time was very sunny and high tempreture. So, many animals hide and looked for shadow place. Therefore, It is
no good for tourist. Thus, I have some suggestions for zoo. opening at night time or well conditioning system is acquired for zoo.
Secoundly, Our expectation is higher because of brochures. But the condition of zoo is little lower than any other world popular zoo. small, less kind of animal, and so on. So, there many tourist take more rest than tour. Therefore, It is need to renovation the zoo and addtion to the number of animals.
I think that it is waste money to go malbourne zoo.
I went at the zoo last Friday, in my opinion the Melbourne Zoo is ordinary.
I saw many kind of animals at the zoo, but I have seen amlost of them before. There are no exciting things.
Also, disapointmently they were sleeping.
I didn`t see some of them because they slept inside.
I recomend if you want to visit the zoo, you should go to lately afternoon. So you are able to see 'ALIVE' animals.
But do you want to enjoy a picnic with your friends or family, I think that`s good except the payment.
I like this zoo because I can see rare animals and animal ecology. BUt many animals sleep so I think zoo stuff should devise the showing. I enjoyed I walked as if I walked around a jungle. You should take a camera, hat and Lunch. Have a enjoy.
I think this zoo is good because animals are freedom and close to people so we can see a naked animal's life. I spent a good time at Melbourne zoo.
I think the best place of zoo is a giraffe because I saw they had relaxed.
I want to go to there again.
I like it this zoo. I injoyed with my freinds and took some photos with my teacher.But if you want go to zoo ,you should take some food and jacket or umbrella maybe use this.
I think,I'll go back to zoo

3. the weather was very hot in this day.
