I love going to the Adelaide Zoo. It's a beautiful, tranquil green space in the middle of the city, filled with well-loved animals. Whilst the pandas are obviously a key attraction, visiting on Easter Day when the hour changed overnight always has an extra charm...More

We travelled over 2000 klms to see the Giant Pandas. One bucket list item now crossed off !. The Adelaide Zoo is the only zoo in Australia to exhibit the Pandas. Well worth the trip.
