Adelaide Zoo Tours

23 Reviews

Around 1,800 exotic and native mammals, birds, reptiles and fish reside at the 8-hectare Adelaide Zoo, comprising 300 species. Major attractions include the Southeast Asian rainforest exhibit, Immersion, a walkthrough jungle environment where tigers and orangatuns feel within reach. Also the giant pandas Wang Wang and Funi!

Opened in 1883, it is Australia's second-oldest zoo and the only not-for-pro fit zoo in the country. Many of the structures are National Trust registered although these, such as the elephant house, these days are used for educational exhibits while the animals have moved to more natural environments. There is a Children's Zoo where you can pet animals including kangaroos and koalas, and the Envirodome, an education/interactive center. 

Practial Info

The zoo is on the edge of the city next to the Botanical Gardens. Catch bus 271 or 273 from Currie Street to Frome Street directly outside the zoo. You can take a water cruise to the zoo from Elder Park, in front of the Festival Centre, on Pop-eye.
