Other than the cost to get in..... this was an enjoyable day ....especially the panda enclosure! Went as a family with a 3 year old and she just loved running from one enclosure to the next! Seeing her face and the joy she got from seeing animals in surroundings suitable to there life styles was amazing! We enjoyed the seal... More

Lovely zoo with lots of nice animals to see. Don't miss the petting zoo where you can pat kangaroos and other friendly animals!

We went to Adelaide Zoo to see the Giant Pandas and we did enjoy seeing them. I would recommend joining one of the free guided tours, volunteer tour guides take you around and they are so knowledgeable. I can't recommend it enough, you will get so much from your visit, especially when it gets to the pandas, you will find... More

Even though there were a few enclosures under renovations or closed the zoo was good. The animals were very active. The zoo is in a convenient location (walking distance from the CBD).

Of course you see all the usual animals but it is well laid out. We particularly went there to see a panda, which we did and that was the best thing about our visit. It is all fairly flat so an easy walk.

I am not a fan of Zoos. Hate seeing animals locked up. Yes they do care for them well. When to see the Panda's but it appears they are not in love. Whoops

We were booked to do the "Bears at Breakfast" experience to meet the sun bear and the otters. Unfortunately, shortly after arrival the Head Keeper informed us that as the sun bear was ill, we would not be able to undertake that experience. He was most apologetic (it was hardly his fault!!), and offered us a refund, to reschedule, or... More

We frequently visit the zoo, with membership it is much cheaper but the price for a single visit must prohibit some from visiting. It's a great open, generally flat and easily walkable zoo with kids. The pandas are lovely but we enjoy the meerkats the most. Food is good but not cheap. Expect to pay $8 for a sandwich and... More

It is worth visiting the zoo just to see the pandas. Conveniently located close to the city it is a good place to spend a couple of hours
