National Zoo & Aquarium
About National Zoo & Aquarium
The National Zoo and Aquarium is a privately owned 47-acre zoo that has been operating since 1936. The newest expansion, which opened in May 2017, 12 ha (30 acres) of open range exhibits provides more opportunities for visitors to get up close with our animals! The National Zoo is located at the western end of Lake Burley Griffin, next to Scrivener Dam, where it enjoys scenic views from its veranda overlooking lush forests as well water creatures bustling below in the midst of their natural habitat.
The National Zoo and Aquarium is a combined zoo and aquarium. It houses both Australian-endemic species as well as introduced ones such as big cats that can be found in Australia's largest collection of them all - till recently, anyways! The institution also runs many educational programs for visitors, which help improve their knowledge about wildlife conservation or how it should go down if we ever want this planet to continue sustaining life on Earth.
