Adelaide Zoo, Adelaide

#1 of 9 in Zoos & Aquariums in South Australia
Must see · Zoo · Zoo / Aquarium
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.

  • Hadn't visited the zoo in years. We were surprised what excellent enclosures and overhead runs were created for the animals. Beautiful grounds to have lunch. Also, the magnificent Morton Bay Fig trees are a standout. The nature playground is impressive! Great job. Thank you
  • A lot of fun even in the heat. Wonderful Adelaide zoo!! The zoo was excellent and relies on volunteers and donations. After you visit the museum you will want to make a donation too. Easy to get to by taking the tram. Enjoy
