The Royal Melbourne Australia Zoo was established in 1898 and has more than 320 species of animals from all over the world and is is Australia’s oldest.
The rainforest habitats give the zoo a pleasant deep green ambience, with the animal exhibits spread within. They also care for endangered species, including tigers from Sumatra in Indonesia and orang-utans.
The seals have a large wave pool for themselves, with underwater observation windows providing a fascinating view of them swimming, diving and cavorting about.
