Get Within a Whisker

Adelaide Zoo offers exciting opportunities for you to get even closer to some of your favourite animal friends.  Simply join one of our interactive behind the scenes experiences – proudly supported by AGL.  You could experience the thrill of hand feeding our Giant Pandas, helping our hippos with their daily mouth check or entering the Squirrel Monkey home to feed them… plus much more!  Our keeper presentations are also a great free way to meet our animals and their carers.

To find about more and to book contact our friendly staff on (08) 8267 3255 or simply book online.

Animal Experiences may be cancelled in extreme weather situations. If this occurs a Zoos SA staff member will be in contact the day prior to your experience.
