What You Can Expect

Perth Zoo General Entry Ticket and Sightseeing Cruise

Your sightseeing cruise and visit to the Perth Zoo can be enjoyed on the same day or separate days—your choice.

Departing from central Perth, your Swan River sightseeing cruise allows you to admire much of the city, from the downtown skyline to the western suburbs where luxurious homes sit up on the riverbank. Spot attractions like King’s River, the Bell Tower and the old Swan Brewery building as you journey down the river to Fremantle, a historical port city located when the river meets the Indian Ocean. Turn around here for the return trip to Perth, where your cruise ends at the departure point.

Your admission to the Perth Zoo includes ferry transfers between the city center and South Perth, a riverfront suburb just across the water where the zoo is located. Enter the zoo to check out its collection of both native Australian animals and exotic wildlife from other countries. Wander through its array of exhibits, from reptiles to marsupials to the animals of the African Savannah.

Great tour, lovely zoo and just a short trip to south perth. The sightseeing tour was great and enabled us to spend a good 4/5 hours in Fremantle

If you decide to do both zoo + return from Fremantle make sure you pick the 11 am option. 2:15 pm is a little late as you're returned @ 4:45 pm, which is too late for the zoo on the day. If you got 1 day extra you can rebook the zoo tour. Otherwise you will have to let go if you're on tight schedule as mine.
