Nice facility. We enjoyed the pandas, giraffes, monkeys....the lions put on quite a "show" as they were quite vocal while we were there. Just the type of thing you can't plan on but it made the day unique. Food on the grounds was better than expected; the kids enjoyed the playground and the petting zoo area also. Depending on the...

We had a great morning at the zoo. There is plenty of shade and I love all the bamboo. The kids loved the noisy monkeys but we're disappointed that the Panda was asleep behind a rock and hard to see. The lion was also asleep. The kids also loved the Ottars. There is little parking along the street do it... More

Even though it was a baking hot day enough animals were out & about. Highlights were the giraffes, lions and monkeys A nice enclosure with penguins They appear to focus on conservation as well as display Plenty for the kids to play on also. Aus$88 for a family of 4 so not cheap. If you can take your own food... More

I visited the zoo with my 3 1/2 yr old. What a great day and a fantastic zoo. The playground is so good as well my son didn't want to leave. The enclosure are so well done that you feel as though the animals are right there and you can see them well. Very helpful staff on hand to answer... More

Lovely little zoo with a good range of zoo animals. Great family outing as it is not too long of a day out for young children to become bored. The playground and dinosaurs are a favourite with children and the pandas are loved by young and old.

I love zoos. I love seeing animals, although not entirely in their natural environment, play with each other, growl at each other, sing at each other and whatever else might take their fancy. Adelaide zoo has a wide variety of animals from giraffes and lions to penguins and sea lions. It's like most zoos I've been to, well laid out... More

I particularly wanted to see the giant pandas and was not disappointed. When we first got there, they were snoozing but later on we returned to find them both alert and eating. Adorable! I also enjoyed seeing many of the other animals. We had a nice lunch in the cafe.

Or should that be roarsome? Realistic and well-positioned throughout the zoo, the dinosaurs were a huge hit with the kids, big and small. A great day out for the family.

We visit the zoo with our young boys yearly and it is fantastic every time :) There is so much to see and do and if you'd like to do something unique but that's not too costly, you and the family can feed to giraffes for only $10 extra per person. It is for all ages and we all loved... More
