"Oldest Zoo in Australia"

Founded in 1862, Melbourne Zoo is Australia's oldest zoo. It has changed extensively over the years, replacing the old cages and pits with more animal-friendly enclosures. The zoo is divided into bio-climatic zones using landscape immersion to help animals acclimatise to the Australian environment and is at the forefront of the captive Lowland Gorilla breeding program. The butterfly house, lion park and primate enclosure are among the highlights. In summer locals flock to the twilight jazz sessions.
