Perth Zoo in western Australian best Tourist spot

A fun place to spend the tour with their families is Perth Zoo in western Australian. However, most people do not think of these places as great tourist attractions. Sure they bring in the locals, but do people really travel all over the world to visit certain zoos? Well apparently some zoos are great enough to actually bring in a lot of tourists, like the Perth Zoo.

Just recently, the Perth Zoo was named as a top attraction in Western Australia. It was named as a top attraction during the Western Australian Tourism Awards. Out of the tons of people that are planning to vacation in Perth, many of them already had plans to visit the zoo. In fact, for some this was the main reason to come to Perth in the first place. This is one of the only places that can actually say that its zoo brings in international tourists.

Tourism Council Western Australia’s chief executive officer, Graham Moss, explained that the awards had seen a substantial increase in the number of nominations for eco categories. This is largely due to an increase in demand from tourists looking for a greener holiday experience.

He went on to add that the standard of submissions were especially high this year. In fact, this positions Western Australia for success in the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, which will be held on March 11, 2011 in Perth.

Perth Zoo first opened back in 1896. Ever since then the zoo has done nothing but grow. It is known around the world as being one of the best zoos to visit. Overall, it is now one of the key attractions in Perth.
