In total, 275 winners were identified, including the top 25 in the world and dedicated lists for South Pacific, Asia, Canada, Europe, India, South America, the U.K. and the U.S.

“For those wanting to see the world’s most wondrous creatures, TripAdvisor has named the Travellers’ Choice Zoos and Aquariums, as chosen by the community of millions,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “Travellers can enjoy a fun and educational experience at any of these popular award-winning attractions around the globe.”

Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews for zoos and aquariums worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.

Australia is King of the Jungle for South Pacific Zoos and Aquariums Lists

Australia leads the tally on the South Pacific lists of zoos and aquariums, with 20 of the top 25 zoos, including Melbourne Zoo, Australia’s first zoo dating back to 1862, taking out the top position. Seven of the top 10 South Pacific aquariums are also in Australia, with Busselton Jetty in Perth topping the South Pacific list.

“TripAdvisor is an excellent way for us to get immediate feedback from our visitors, and it’s great for us to be [IL1] recognised as one of the region’s top zoos.  We seek to create experiences for our visitors to connect with wildlife, understand their circumstances in the wild, and join us to take action in helping wildlife in a variety of ways, including our community conservation campaigns,” said Kevin Tanner, Director of Melbourne Zoo.
