Adelaide Zoo, Adelaide
(4.2/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
Gaze at over 1,800 animals covering more than 300 species at Adelaide Zoo. Australia's second oldest zoo and the only major city zoo running as a nonprofit offers exhibits of wildlife from four continents. At Immersion, walk through Southeast Asian jungle and come practically face-to-face with Sumatran Tigers and Orangutans. A behind-the-scenes tour brings you up close with a range of animals and into normally off-limits areas. Pay special attention to the former Elephant House and the entrance on Frome Road; both of these are on the National Trust of South Australia's architectural heritage list.

  • Well not really, all the animals and enclosures were pretty well set up. Close encounters paid extras with animals exceptionally good value. Wonderful panda enclosures and the pandas were happy to sit...  more »
  • Really good experience, many animals and the facilities are in excellent conditions. It has green areas within the zoo to sit down and rest a bit if you feel like it, really good attention, zookeepers...  more »
  • Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The pandas are absolutely gorgeous. Could watch them for hours. Next time we'll go to the open range zoo

  • l like the red panda a lot~~~~and caracal kitten,they are sooooo cute>_
  • It's the zoo, what's not to love? Food can be a bit pricey, but easy to bring stuff with you and it's close enough to town you can get something else easily. Good range of animals, nice for a day out and something different.
  • What can I say - I *love* the zoo. Adelaide Zoo is small compared to some international zoos, but they've used the space well, and they seem conscious of the comfort of the animals - not trying to cram too many in together. Exhibits are very well done - it's a great day out. My favourites are the Red Pandas and Fennec Foxes. The reptiles are also great. As a few people have mentioned, parking in that area can be dicey - I'd recommend parking somewhere around Rundle Street and taking a walk through the Botanic Gardens to reach the zoo.
  • I always love visiting this zoo. The staff are the friendliest of all the zoo in Australia, the animals are plentiful and cheerful. My wife loves the 4 little Otters as you enter. Plenty of things to keep the kids occupied also. Overall, a great day for the family any day of the year!
  • A great day out for the family. We will be getting a membership and going all year round. My kids loved the animals, I am fond of the picnic zones.
