South Perth Zoo was our main excursion yesterday. It was about 20 minutes drive from home, and was well worth the money. We spent 3 hours there, but one really needs 4-5 hours. The zoo is large, clean and the animals are in good condition. The holding pens also allow you to get really close, which is great. The kids loved it (as did we).
Below are some photo's of the day, some only showing animals to give you and idea of how close you get. I only had an 17-85mm lens on the camera.
As with all lions you really have to see them up-close to realise just how powerful they are.
A large croc just floating completely moitionless in the display pool (there is an outdoor area too). This was probably the most impressive sight.
I think his name was Jack...
