|Elephants at Perth Zoo|
It's got a good Australian section too, which is I guess where most of the tourists head. We don't always go through there, and last time we did we had a bit of an incident with a kangaroo who got his head right into my handbag and ate all my son's sultanas. So don't say I didn't warn you!
There are, despite the sultana-eating-kangaroos, many things I love about the Perth Zoo (and no, they didn't pay me to say this - I've just had a lot of experience there in the past year or so!), but above all it's a green, shady, relaxing place to stroll around, and even on a busy day it's large enough to never feel too crowded. It's certainly come a very long way from the concrete cages I remember there from my childhood visits, and like most modern zoos looks like it's always trying to improve the conditions for animals. If you're visiting Perth with kids then it's a must-see, and for anyone else with a love of animals and a spare half a day, I'd send you there too.
