We decided to check out the Adelaide zoo and had a great day strolling around. The highlight was the beautiful male panda. Just perfect!!! The monkeys were also good with a baby entertaining us with his antics. We thought the entry fee was very reasonable. Getting the free bus to the zoo was also a bonus

Great visit to the zoo. The keepers clearly care about their animals. And the enclosures are large and have stimulation for the animals.it took about 90 min to do one lap of the zoo.

Haven't seen a panda since I was a child so was great to see again . Zoo isn't large but animals seem in very good condition , worth a trip if you have a free afternoon

Always something new to explore. There was a Dinosaue exhibit and I could not get past the life-sized animated Tyrannosauros with my 2 year old grandson. The Zoo gets constantly upgraded. I find new things to explore every year.

We were on our last full day in Adelaide and teenage daughter wanted to see Kangaroos before we departed back to NZ. We got to Zoo half an hour before it closed and nice staff member let us in. Average review is only based on what we saw (about 4 enclosures that were not large) so apologies if we missed... More

As zoo's go I am sorry but this is not the best. We went late (3pm) and got charged full price although the cashier did give us senior rates which was $24 each. But the animals are being put away for the night from about 3.30pm onwards so we saw hardly any. The zoo shuts at 5pm which seems quite... More
