ANIMAL FACTS - Tigers

There are three tiger species that have become extinct in the last 70 years. They are: the Balinese Tiger, Javan Tiger and the Caspian Tiger.

Crikey - More Animal Facts!

Tigers are the largest of the Big Cats with an adult Siberian weighing in at up to 300kg.

Watch our tigers swimming in the water, what an amazing sight to see!

Tiger Temple Temporarily closed for renovations

G’day! Please be advised that our Tiger Temple area is temporarily closed for renovations, due to re-open by the end of June 2016 as we upgrade our facilities. There are still plenty of opportunities to see these amazing animals though with our gorgeous new Sumatran tiger cubs, Scout and Delilah, who can be visited by guests in their cub yard in our South East Asian section of the Zoo or taking their walk throughout the Zoo most mornings each week. Encounters are also now available with this adorable duo!

We apologise for any inconvenience during this upgrade. We love our tigers very much and these improvements are necessary to ensure they have the best home here possible.
