Summer School Holidays 2019-2020 panda

You’ll love spending the summer holidays at Adelaide Zoo!

As well as all our wonderful animals, free-flight shows and keeper talks, we’ve dotted pop-up events throughout the holidays to make everyone smile. From Santa, face painting and The Amazing Drumming Monkeys show to a shimmying silent disco, your summer of fun starts RIGHT HERE…

Santa Claus is coming to the Zoo

Friday 13 & Saturday 14 December from 11:30am – 2:30pm

Look out for Santa as he walks around our beautiful botanical grounds, stopping to pose for pictures using his special Santa photo frame.

Free face painting at Natures Playground

Tuesday 31 December from 11am – 3pm
Thursday 2, Tuesday 7 and Thursday 9 January from 11am – 3pm

The Amazing Drumming Monkeys show

Tuesday 14 January at 10:30am and 12:30pm

This adorable show will have kids (1 – 8 years-old) enthralled as monkeys Bongo and Congo delight the crowd playing African drums, singing, dancing, performing tricks and cracking jokes.

With positive messaging about our planet and its people the show’s ‘feel good’ vibes are the perfect accompaniment to a wonderful day out at Adelaide Zoo.

Guru Dudu Silent Disco

Wednesday 22 January from 11am – 2pm 

Put on your dancing shoes and zoom and shimmy your way around Adelaide Zoo with silent disco host Guru Dudu!

New to the zoo, this fun event will take groups of people on a walking tour around our beautiful grounds stopping to shake their booties by the baboons and wiggle by the wombats.
