Adelaide Zoo is home to over 2,500 animals and 250 species of exotic and native mammals, birds, reptiles and fish exhibited in 8 hectares of magnificent botanic surrounds.
First opened to the public in 1883, Adelaide Zoo is the second oldest zoo in the nation and is one of our most iconic attractions.
It’s a relaxing green city oasis and vibrant sanctuary that gives you the feeling of stepping into another world. It’s full of diversity, colour and unique things to see and do. It offers an intimate zoo experience speckled with elements of curiosity, fantasy, fun and surprise.
