Adelaide Zoo, Adelaide

4.2
#1 of 9 in Zoos & Aquariums in South Australia
Gaze at over 1,800 animals covering more than 300 species at Adelaide Zoo. Australia's second oldest zoo and the only major city zoo running as a nonprofit offers exhibits of wildlife from four continents. At Immersion, walk through Southeast Asian jungle and come practically face-to-face with Sumatran Tigers and Orangutans. A behind-the-scenes tour brings you up close with a range of animals and into normally off-limits areas. Pay special attention to the former Elephant House and the entrance on Frome Road; both of these are on the National Trust of South Australia's architectural heritage list.

  • Lovely Zoo so close to the city. Doing great conservation work. Good variety of animals, and very easy to get around. Saw the bird flight show and penguin keeper talk, both excellent. Great display of birds and small monkeys. Loved the pandas of course, and fed some happy, greedy goats in the Children's area. Lovely day, well spent.
  • What an outstanding site! Oddly enough, I've been to a lot of different zoos, and even a couple abroad. But This one is amazing. Great place for kids to learn about animals they may never see in person in the wild. Highly recommend!!!
