Adelaide Zoo information
Around 1800 exotic and native mammals, birds and reptiles roar, growl and screech at Adelaide’s wonderful zoo, which opened in 1883. There are free walking tours half-hourly (plus a slew of longer and overnight tours focusing on specific environments and species), feeding sessions and a children’s zoo. Until Wang Wang and Funi – Australia’s only giant pandas – arrived in 2009 (pandemonium!), the major drawcard was the Southeast Asian rainforest exhibit. You can take a river cruise to the zoo from the Festival Centre on Popeye.
