About Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Safari Park

For more than a hundred years, visitors from all over the world have been experiencing the wonder of wildlife at Adelaide Zoo. Home to more than 2,500 exotic and native animals and only a short walk from the Adelaide CBD, it’s little wonder almost half a million people visited Adelaide Zoo each year. Where else in Australia can you step off a busy CBD street and in minutes be knee-high to a giraffe, hand-feeding a Giant Tortoise or feel the wind on your face from the wings of a Blue and Gold Macaw as it flies just centimeters from you? Adelaide Zoo offers a range of truly unique animal experiences including the Southern Hemisphere’s only Giant Pandas. 

Monarto Safari Park is the biggest open-range zoo in Australia, and indeed one of the largest in the world, spanning more than 1,500 hectares and home to more than 50 species of exotic and native mammals, birds and reptiles. You can actually fit every major zoo in Australia in Monarto Safari Park and still have land left over! Home to many of Africa’s most impressive animals like African Lions, White Rhinos, Giraffe, Chimpanzees and Cheetah, Monarto Safari Park is a slice of Africa, all within an hour’s drive of Adelaide. The zoo is actually home to one of Australia’s largest lion prides and giraffe herds and we are the most successful giraffe breeding facility in Australasia.  

Both zoos have celebrated outstanding breeding success and fight each day to safeguard vulnerable species from around the world.

Zoos SA is passionately committed to equal employment opportunity. We believe diversity, inclusion and reconciliation are fundamental to our rich organisational culture and values, and we demonstrate this commitment through all our employment practices so that our people continue to reflect the local communities in which we work.

Joining the Zoos SA team is unique and wonderfully fulfilling opportunity.
