Feed the Lorikeets at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne FL!

Ever since my first visit many years ago, I have always loved the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Florida. And it turns out I am not the only one who loves the Brevard Zoo. My feelings are apparently shared by many others, and were recently confirmed through TripAdvisor’s Top 10 Zoo List, in which the Brevard Zoo was ranked number 8 in the nation! Wow, huge congrats to Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Florida for making this list! And lucky for us Brevard County residents to have such an awesome zoo so close to home!

Brevard Zoo, located in Melbourne, Florida on Wickham Road, just east of I-95, has been open to the public since March 1994. Since that time, the Zoo has been continually growing, acquiring new animals, new exhibits, and new attractions. Currently, the Zoo is home to about 575 animals representing 165 species from North and South America, Africa, and Australia. Brevard Zoo is known for its natural habitats and exhibits that blend into the surroundings, helping visitors feel like they are getting closer to nature and closer to the animals.

Some of the top animal attractions at the Brevard Zoo include the opportunity to pet and feed the giraffes from an elevated platform, feed nectar and seed sticks to the lorikeets and cockatiels in the Aviary, view the alligator and crocodile feedings from the bridge, watch the river otters as they eat their lunch, and check out the antics of the always-popular spider monkeys. Some more special tours at Brevard Zoo include Rhino Encounters, where you can get up close and personal with the huge rhinos, self-guided paddleboat rides through the wetlands, kayaking tours, and train rides. Another very popular exhibit at Brevard Zoo is Paws On, where children can enjoy the “Indian River Play Lagoon”, with varying depths for children of all ages, as well as an aquarium, fort building area, and petting zone. Recently, Brevard Zoo opened Treetop Trek, a challenging outdoor adventure through the tree tops combining tightropes, crab walks, jungle bridges, nets, and zip lines.
