Adelaide Zoo

Adelaide Zoo Review

Australia's second-oldest zoo still retains much of its original architecture. Enter through the 1883 cast-iron gates to see such animals as the giant Pandas, Sumatran tigers, Australian rain-forest birds, and chimpanzees housed in modern, natural settings. The zoo is world renowned for its captive breeding and release programs, and rare species including the red panda and South Australia's own yellow-footed rock wallaby are among its successes. In June 2008, the Australian government and Adelaide zoo signed a cooperative agreement to help secure the long-term survival of the giant panda, and in late 2009 Wang Wang and Funi arrived on loan from China to become the only giant pandas in the Southern Hemisphere, and the first to live permanently in Australia. Special VIP panda tours are now also available. Ask at the ticket office about tours and feeding times.
