My main reason for travelling to the zoo was to see the pandas which I had the fun of viewing. Then there was the experience of all other aspects of the zoo. Following the schedule of timed events and feeding of animals is worthwhile.

In Adelaide for the weekend, we got our walk on through the botanical gardens, and decided to try the zoo. What a great day, sure, some of the residents were a bit quiet, but still great adventure My favourite- the hippo.

Spent a few enjoyable hours at the zoo. The pandas were fantastic and the other animals were very accessible. The zoo is well set up and easy to get around.

Zoo is great for family with kids. Lots of animals to see. Only takes about 3 hours to get around. Wheelchairs & strollers for babies/smal kids are available to hire.

A nice zoo with a diversity of animals in a landscaped setting. It wasn’t too crowded either even though it was school hols. Some of the exhibits were a bit old, small and concrete-central but overall were pretty good. Maps and zoo signs could do...More

We came to Adelaide especially to see the pandas at Adelaide Zoo. We loved them! We were able to get up very close and enjoyed seeing them munch away on their bamboo. The panda keeper presentation was informative and just the right duration. We also...More

No you can’t pet any of the animals at the zoo. I don’t think I’d want to anyway!
