2They are both excellent zoos, but I prefer Sydney for its harbourside setting, which is magnificent.
Maybe Taronga Park Zoo (Sydney) and Werribee open range zoo near Melbourne. You've got the best of both worlds in that lot.
I've never been to the Melbourne aquarium so can not compare, but the Sydney aquarium is very good and has recently been refurbished..

12The Adelaide Zoo is so old fashioned it is not funny, the pens that house the Sumatran Tigers and some other animals are a perfect example of this as there is no elevation there at all and the animals stay out of sight easily at the very back of the pens, and it was so sad to see the red panda pens and how small it was and the path worn by the constant walking up and down on it.
And what bright spark decided to put the Panda gift shop, so for from the exit from the Panda's exhibition?
And why is the main gift shop not situated were you exit the zoo?
It was so sad to see un-happy staff and a animals there,and the zoo should try to get out of the 1800's mind set it has, this is not the way to run a zoo in this era.
The Adelaide zoo is the perfect example of how not to run a zoo, for me about the best run zoo i have seen is the far smaller privately owned Mogo zoo, in Southern NSW that has a breeding programe that runs in tandum with Taronga zoo, and who's inventive exhibtion of several species of monkeys is an eye opener, with no bars or cages to be seen anywhere, it shows this is the way to run a zoo in the modern era.
