About Us


Adelaide Zoo is home to more than 2,500 animals and almost 250 species of exotic and native mammals, birds, reptiles and fish exhibited in 8 hectares of magnificent botanic surroundings.

We focus on endangered and rare animals from continents which made up the super continent Gondwana - South America, India, Africa and Australia (also South East Asia). The Zoology and Botany of these continents show interesting similarities and are the regions represented in the Zoo’s major exhibits.

Owned and operated by the Royal Zoological Society of South Australia, we are the only major metropolitan Zoo in Australia to be owned and operated by a not for profit conservation charity and governed by a volunteer board on behalf of its members.
