Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / South Australia / Greater Adelaide / Adelaide / Adelaide Zoo
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.

Love this place,was great going mid week,very few people there. Chatted to lots of volunteers who had great stories and information about the animals. Always enjoy visiting and as I have a annual zoo pass can visit whenever I want. I'd definitely recommend looking into getting one.
Shattered that it's better than Melbourne Zoo... only let down was lion enclosure and especially the Seal exhibit.. a ton of unique animals, great displays of old and new. Might want to bring your own food and drink as can take a while to buy something.
