We loved this place, travelled on the Popeye boat. we just wanted to see the Pandas. This was one of the best things we did in S.A. Beautiful Pandas. The Zoo was amazing and we even got a private talk on the Birds at the zoo. Loved it.

Loved it, it was a great day out. It sucks that there is no free parking or proper parking just for the zoo for a little extra money

I went to the zoo to see the pandas, they are my favourite animal and it was an experience I was looking forward to. As we walked into the panda inclosure we were greeted with asian style music that added to the Chinese theme. We looked at Wang-Wang first in the out door enclosure, she was happy and wandered right... More

Being from Melbourne, of course I'm going to be biased and say that our zoo has more (well it does) but Adelaide Zoo is nothing to be sneezed at. From the second you walk out of the ticket gate there is plenty to see, starting with the hippo pond. There isn't as much of a safety barrier between you and... More

The zoo is a comfortable walk from the city but also linked by ferry or bus. It's quite a small zoo but everywhere there are animals or birds so you see a great deal without excessive walking. The pandas are a superb addition but the variety of monkeys and apes and other exotic and Australian animals is impressive. I just... More

We visited Adelaide zoo. We weren't happy that we had to pay for parking with a 4 hour limit. Then it was $32 per an adult (3 adults). It was flat which was great , but the animal enclosures needed an update. Melbourne and City zoos are much nicer and recommend to save your money and visit the other zoos... More

A little hidden treasure of Adelaide. This places really relaxes you, strolling around in pleasant surroundings but let's face it, they have Panda's. There such amazing animals.

Also disgusted by the Zoo's choice to dump local company Golden North. Orangutan keeper tried her best to promote 'sustainable palm oil' last weekend - funny how half the people walked away when she was doing so. Apparently use of palm oil isn't going away, so the zoo may as well embrace 'sustainable' palm oil !!! She ruined my day.... More

Loved this quaint zoo,nearly all flat so made getting around easier Panda display was wonderful. Map was easy to follow. Animal enclosures were all very well maintained. If I had to complain I felt it might be be a bit expensive for larger families to visit although they do have some family discounts. Not a lot of parking space available... More
