National Zoo & Aquarium

At the National Zoo, not only can you see a variety of native and exotic animals from around the world but you can also see amazing creatures that live in our rivers and oceans. We are the only combined zoo & aquarium in Australasia – that’s two venues in one!

Explore the only inland aquarium exhibit in Australia. See fish and reptile exhibits including a new Rocky Shores Touch Pool, Barrier Reef Wonders, River Systems of the World, Southern Oceans and the Rainforest.
