Adelaide Zoo

Begin your own outside adventure as a family this summer!

Take a walk on the wild side and experience our new Nature’s Playground. Have fun with nature inspired play equipment suitable for all abilities.

The new play space is a wonderful environment where visitors of all ages can let their imaginations run wild, have fun, challenge themselves and explore the natural world.

The playground includes play equipment built on nature play principles that stimulate all the senses through climbing structures, water play features, a natural creek bed and aerial walkways. The precinct also has disability friendly toilets, a new parent’s room and an undercover function area suitable for birthday parties and other unique functions.

From atop the aerial walkway get a birds-eye-view of the Zoo, the CBD and the riverbank.

Slide, climb or traverse your way through this unique play space.

Build a fort with branches, sticks and leaves. And let your finished fort inspire some imaginary play.

Splash and play through a series of water jets and discover tadpoles and frogs in the natural creek bed.

Take a break undercover while enjoying a coffee or light meal.

There’s no better time to become a Zoos SA member. Zoo members receive unlimited entry to Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Safari Park and most major Australian zoos 365 days a year, plus much more!
