Adelaide Zoo is comparatively small but compensates with city location and reasonable parking available nearby. From Sumatran Tigers to the cheerful Meerkats this Zoo provides quite a large variety of animal species including birds, penguins, orangutans and reptiles. A children;s section offers up- close animal encounters and animal feeding times also welcome customers to watch. I understand that there are... More

one cold Saturday morning we had a booking for the behind the zoo tour to see the hippos. It was excellent so much time and effort was put in by the zoo keepers to answer our questions and spend a bit of one on one time with these great animals. Thought that was going to be it but no, we... More

I took a youth group ( aged between 11 to 18) with parents to the Zoo the whole group enjoyed the experiance there was a variety of animal and displays, something for everyone. When talking about the Zoo everyone seem to have different adventures and witnessed different behavior in the anilmals.

My children adore the Adelaide Zoo because its on the edge of the city, close to the Botanic Gardens and full of interesting animals, trails and pathways which help you navigate around the Zoo. I particularly liked the setting of the main cafe as its under huge trees and the kids love to play in this safe space.

One of the better urban zoos. The pandas definately worth seeing if you can't get to China. Most of the animals have decent habitats. Especially like the walk through bird cage.

Not necessarily a bad thing but the number of different species seems to have reduced from a few years ago. Some small cages still in use but at least they are starting to get fewer animals into bigger enclosures. Glad we got free tickets as it is not cheap
