National Zoo & Aquarium
Get up close and personal with some of the world's most amazing creatures at the National Zoo & Aquarium in Canberra. From lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) to giraffes and penguins and monkeys, the Zoo features a variety of native and exotic animals, as well as the largest inland saltwater tank in Australia. You can even pat a cheetah, feed a bear or become acquainted with a meerkat during some of the most amazing hands-on animal experiences in Australia.
Jamala Wildlife Lodge within the zoo grounds offers a once-in-a-lifetime luxury safari accommodation experience. Bookings essential.
