“Quiet and a lot of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

we went mid-week and it was very quiet which was great as you could get right up close to all the animals including the Panda's. My young son could run free without risk of running into anyone.

“Zoos”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We have been spoiled in the past as we have been to many wonderful zoos around the world.
Adelaide Zoo is a small zoo and we did enjoy the Australian birds and particularly the feeding of the Macaws.
The food kiosk was not particularly good with it's selection of food.
Take the kids though.

“A good day out for everyone.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Not on the same scale as Sydney or Melbourne, but a beautiful Zoo. Lots of unusual animals & of course Wang Wang & Funi. Great to see, Funi was very active, eating & wandering around the large outside enclosure. Wang Wang was in the inside enclosure. The Zoo is very educational, with plenty of staff on hand offering information & answering questions. Lots of lawned areas & seating. We dined at the Wisteria restaurant, good menu, well priced & nice sized serves. Prompt & friendly service. There's also other food & drink outlets. Toilets were very clean.

“Pandas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Beautiful environment and the pandas were so sweet. Plenty of animals I never even knew existed, I wandered around thinking "what's that!?' Brilliant for European visitors. Fab day out.

“A lovely zoo, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We went to see the giant pandas. We weren't disappointed in any way. We went early in the day and saw the pandas up close. A nice zoo to wonder about in. The cafe at the main gate served some nice food.
