Australia's only combined Zoo and Aquarium is privately owned and situated just five minutes from the centre of Canberra. The National Zoo and Aquarium gives you an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the world's most amazing creatures. With a wide variety of native and exotic animals and the largest inland saltwater tank in Australia, there is something for everyone. Wander in and have a casual stroll around the park, or make a day of it with family, friends and make use of the picnic areas and complimentary barbecue facilities.
