We recently spent an afternoon at the Royal Melbourne Zoo as part of another Scoopon deal. Neither of us are regular zoo-goers, subscribing to the philosophy ‘a zoo is a zoo’, but I’ve always enjoyed Omaha’s great Henry Dorley Zoo and have experienced the San Diego zoo a couple of times so I was anxious do a comparison.
The Melbourne zoo didn’t disappoint. It’s full of shaded walking paths, informative placards of animal info, and, of course, animals from many different countries and landscapes. Unique highlights included the Butterfly house, the baby orangutan and the little penguins.
We enjoyed our experience and are glad we visited the zoo at least once but our non-zoo-lover adage gained even more cred. A zoo is a zoo. I guess that’s true no matter what side of the world you’re on.
