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.

  • 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.
