Overview

Wildlife & zoos

Featuring a state of the art aquarium and award-winning zoos along with abundant parklands teeming with native wildlife, you don't have to go far in Melbourne to experience the wonders of the natural world.

Animals from around the world

See Melbourne Zoo's newest arrival, Mali the baby elephant, and discover the incredible orang-utan sanctuary. Head to the city to visit the colourful and scary creatures of the deep at Melbourne Aquarium, or take the train to Werribee and see rhinos, giraffes, zebras and hippos on grassy plains.

Native wildlife

The city’s parks and gardens are home to a wide range of wildlife. Spot brush-tailed and ringtail possums in the Fitzroy and Treasury gardens on winter evenings, and admire the abundant birdlife including rosellas and lorikeets. Spend a day at the Royal Botanic Gardens, a natural sanctuary for native wildlife such as the black swans, cockatoos and kookaburras.
