We arrived at the zoo as a family to a very long queue of people waiting to buy their tickets. I notice a second, very short queue for members and pre-purchased tickets. So I jumped onto Google to pre-purchase tickets so we could move into the shorter queue and found Experience Oz. The booking was seamless and fast. It allowed us to experience the zoo for longer rather than waiting in a long queue. I will be using Experience Oz in future for other bookings.

We had a wonderful Day at Melbourne Zoo recently with our family. We arrived early and found that this was a good time to arrive with young children. The kids had a great time and there were seats scattered around for anyone that needed a little rest.

The Zoo itself is very nice and not far from the city. Lemurs should be the must stop for everyone! They are friendly and like to pose for photos. Most of the animals go to sleep around 3:30 or 4 and it is better to come to the zoo earlier!

It was great to have the tickets being bought online as we wanted to spend most of our time in the zoo and not in the long queues. Altogether the experience was hassle free and convenient. The trip itself was great as my little ones got to enjoy and play around. The new artificial grass which served as a playground attaracted many children and parents as well who finally had the time to relax after the days activities.

My daughter and I had a wonderful day out during the school holidays. I bought the ticket online which was much cheaper and allowed me to skip the long queues. The previous $10 discount from Experience Oz also further reduced my admission price. The zoo was well set up with good human traffic control. There was easy access to all the enclosures and the animal/keeper displays were spaced out with enough time to get to them. We enjoyed the butterfly park the most as it was very interactive and they will land on you if you keep your hands out long enough! Overall, a very affordable and enjoyable trip thanks to Experience Oz!
