Went to the Zoo just after Christmas. The dinosaur exhibit was in town. Absolutely sensational. The zoo needs your support. If you haven't been down in a while, make the time and effort to take some friends or family. It's just a great day out!
although I'm not the biggest fan of Zoo's, I've just never been able to wrap my head around the concept, I must say that the Adelaide Zoo is a pretty good one. I found that the habitats that a lot of the animals were in were very clean, well maintained and very spacious. The lion enclosures could have been a lot bigger, they looked a bit cramped in there. For the price this is a pretty entertaining zoo and it provides the kids with a lot to do throughout the day.
Great for all the family, the zoo has really progressed over the last few years, adding new parts and revamping old, still quite expensive, and if you intend to come a few times in a year, a season ticket is definitely a must.. The kids playground is fantastic and is great in its own right....
I love the adelaide zoo! It is great to go back there now my daughter is interested in the animals. only wish the food were good - it's terrible, so pack your own lunch if you can.
Nice place. Plenty of cool shades inside. Always some spots for calming minds. Not many parking spots on Sunday. Thank you.
