Owner description: Adelaide Zoo, one of Adelaide's most iconic attractions, is home to more than 3,000 animals and 250 species of exotic and native mammals, birds, reptiles and fish exhibited over eight hectares of magnificent botanic surroundings. Situated next to the Botanic Gardens, Adelaide Zoo is open every day of the year from 9:30am to 5pm and this amazing wildlife experience is only a 15 minute walk from the city.

I love animals and while I'm not too thrilled with the idea of "captivity" I support the Australian zoos. I am a yearly member and visit quite a lot as it is only a 5 minute walk from the CBD.
This zoo currently has two pandas and (when they are awake..) they are magical to see. There are plenty of other animals to see and you will not get bored while to take your time wandering around.
I love this and Monarto zoo's!

A lovely clean zoo. Plenty for the children to look at. A little pricey for a 1/2 day attraction but the pandas are worth it!

We liked that the Zoo has 'volunteers' around who give you information on the animals, etc. It was nice chatting to them. What a great job/hobby. I liked how close you could get to the animals.

The zoo is very easy to get to if visiting in the city. Whether you walk through the botanical gardens,or down frome street or use the free connector bus service.
Its small compared to other cities but it is in the city. However...the panda's are worth every penny. Not ready to be a breeding pair they are getting to know each other.Adelaide has had to put in 10 acres of bamboo to feed them and they like variety daily changing what type they will eat that day. Yes they look cuddly.

Funi and Wang Wang are of course the giant pandas and our prime reason for visiting the zoo. Their enclosures were really great and both pandas gave us a great opportunity to video them.
