The smartest thing we did when we entered the Perth Zoo was hiring a tow wagon (approximately $15 I recall.) We actually weren’t very smart at all and walked right by, but just a few minutes up the small incline and we realised it would be a worthy investment indeed for our little boy so we backtracked and paid up. Yes, smartest decision that day.

For those on a budget or who have special dietary requirements, you are allowed to bring food into the zoo although there is a cafe on site too for those who prefer. There are free bbq’s available also.
And for those of you with toddlers or young children like Ned, there is a playground in the centre of the zoo that is just perfect for helping them to run off a little steam! Isn’t is amazing that a simple playground can be a godsend when travelling with kids?
And so our adventure began.
Ned loved the orangutans. And I think they loved him as well.
We watched the elephants have their daily bath and roll in the mud, and saw animals from all corners of the world. I won’t spoil it for you though. I’d rather encourage you to take your own adventure!
