Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / South Australia / Greater Adelaide / Adelaide / Adelaide Zoo
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.

This was my first time visiting Monarto. what a fabulous place to go and see the animals so close in a habitat close to their own.

Fabulous zoo suitable for the whole family! Great collection of exhibits and animals. Navigation and access and all easy. There is a large children’s playground as well. Plenty of cleaver exhibits for nocturnal animals as well. Strong recommend from me!
Only a small space, but well laid out and so much happening. We even had the delight of seeing the Pandas, despite them not being on display. Friendly staff and great displays. Only complaint: limited souvenirs.
Love the zoo, friendly, helpful staff. Nice layout with lots of cool plants. Animals look content in good size, clean enclosures. Like the conservation efforts and message of this zoo. As an added bonus, the bat colony just outside is quite simple unbelievable, I've never seen anything like it, amazing! Thanks Adelaide zoo 💖
The good old Adelaide zoo is still a favourite in my family. Still some historic parts of the zoo mixed with some needed upgrades. The range of animals is good but the numbers of each species are low. Always fun for the kids and a great chance to test your skills with the camera. Good value, good facilities.
We had a great experience during the Illuminate Adelaide festival. The queue was handled well and there were staff to make sure the entry process was smooth. The displays were phenomenal! There were plenty of volunteers who were able to guide us through the zoo. It was a great evening and we hope to be back soon
