There were parents with kids everywhere when we visited, which shows the value of an inner-directed zoo. Walk-in aviaries, good signage, warm and friendly staff, many different types of animals, all make for a good few hours. I recommend about 3 hours at least. The...More

I loved the way this zoo was laid out with lots of winding paths, yes and greenery. It made exploring it a bit more of a voyage of discovery. The animals were on the whole on decent enclosures with plenty of environmental enrichment in evidence....More

We visit Adelaide zoo yearly, Adelaide is so lucky to have such a beautiful zoo right in the city. The whole park is beautifully maintained, you,d be hard pressed finding any rubbish laying around! The staff are lovely and really helpful and informative.

Worth a visit if your looking for something to do in Adelaide. The Giant Panda's were the highlight and they were so close you really got to see how cute they are

I think the panda's were a new addition when we visited, as there seemed to be looks of hype surrounding them, and sure enough their section was the hub of activity we expected. The lions for me were probably the highlight. The zoo is well...More

Loving to experience new animals but not in cages, Adelaide Zoo is midway to free and cage. Unfortunately there was a feeling of doom with animals either recently died or the last of the breed. Still a lovely place to take the family for a...More

I'm sorry I am unsure . Best thing to do is probably ring or email the zoo itself. They have contact details on their website .
