Adelaide Zoo Reviews & Ratings
They have a large enough room to seat over a hundred people. The food provided could have been better with more healthy options available. The food also need stop be topped up timely as with our large numbers the food wasn't being topped up on time with empty plates being left at the buffet table for too long.
Definitely one of the best Zoo's in Australia to stroll around. Plenty of tree cover. Exhibits are well maintained. Lot's to see, great for the kids and animal enthusiasts. Very close to the city. An easy walk from all central accomodation.
Really Great. Loads of animals to discover. Make sure you check out the Panda's their amazing. Food available from 2 places. 1 is a restaurant another is more casual with outdoor seating. A great day out. Reasonable admission prices. DO IT you wont regret it.
Magical place for the whole family. Doesn't matter your age, it's amazing for tomorrow and old. Great atmosphere, plenty to see and do, caters for everyone. Highly recommend a visit or two or three 😊
Had a great time on our recent visit. Entry Fee: Was glad to see a family ticket that allowed for 3 children!! Fantastic, we are often put off visiting place due to having to pay the extra child fee. It's pricey for a family to get in (but average for this sort of venue) so make sure you make the most of your day there, by either having another adult to pop out and top up your 4hr car park or park further away in the 10hr spaces. Extra Costs: Food was average price for a venue like this these days. So either make sure you've got plenty of food money or bring your own. We purchased lunch but made sure we took our own drinks and snacks. There is also the zoo shop full of stuffed toys and loads of goodies for the kids, we stayed away this time however have purchased things in there previously and found items in a huge range of prices to suit everyone. Our favourite new addition: The Tamerin Monkey enclosure that goes across the path and along the edge of the lawn area near the rotunda. We loved it and spent a lot of time watching the monkeys. See our photos. Could Improve on: the toilets near the playground area. Many people, including ourselves were shocked to only see 2 toilets there - they had wheelchair access which was great - but we spent a fair amount of time lining up for the toilet.
