Adelaide Zoo is well laid out & has a wonderful group of very knowledgeable people scattered around the zoo who are able to answer questions & enhance the visitor experience. During our visit the female Panda didn't come out into her enclosure but we were lucky enough to spend almost an hour watching the male panda eating bamboo & strolling... More

Had such a nice day at this zoo it is quite small in size but big in heart. The animals all have beautiful enclosures and are well looked after and the talks were well worth going to they were fun and creative. Would defiantly go back again. Especially to visit the wonderful pandas.

The Adelaide Zoo is housed within the City precincts so is easily located. (The Monarto Zoo is up in the hills and also well worth a visit if you have time - there they house larger animals, some of which are rare now.) The City Zoo is beautifully set out with a section devoted to children where baby animals are... More

Adelaide Zoo is situated in a very nice place with beautiful surroundings and just minutes from the city center. The zoo isn't as large as some of the others in Australia but you could still easily spend a whole day here. The admission prices are quite expensive but I think it is worth it. The zoo has Wang Wang and... More

Have visited the adelaide zoo many times over the last 40 years! ...and it always has evolved greatly over the years. Lots of close up viewing of the animals from a large species range. Plenty of nice spots for picnics under the trees. Plus a chance to see pandas.

Excellent location near CBD centre, only 10-15 min walk from the northern terrace. Nicely build as tight package with a lot of to see. Obviously some what Limited scope of animals however at least for me still enough for first visit. Panda's are must!

I recently was invited to a wedding at the zoo and was so surprised at the way the place has changed. A new entrance cafés lovely shaded walking paths and open spaces. The animals enclosures have been modernised and animals had lots of space to move around in It was a great and different way to celebrate the occasion and... More

A nice zoo though it is easy to see where upgrading work is needed in areas. A good animal selection for a smaller city zoo. I like the fact you can get a good overview in just 2 to 3 hours as this is about the limit for my daughter. We are zoo members so this is good for us... More

The Adelaide zoological gardens are just north of the city. Within walking distance from the CBD. It's a worthwhile half day out. There's lots of cute and not so cute animals to see, and the cafe isn't to fowl (pardon the pun) either. If you're a first timer it's got to rate right up there. And it's got Panda's!!!

This is an intersting Zoo well laid out and plenty of animals etc to keep all interested (especially the children section where animals intermingle with the children and parents). The Zoo has the added attraction of the only Pandas in any Zoo in Australia which makes a visit worthwhile especially if you have an interest in them. You would need... More
