Does your little one love animals? Help us build a wild new Children’s Zoo at Adelaide Zoo and share the wonder of wildlife with the next generation!

We’re excited to be partnering with Variety SA to create a new precinct perfect for young ones at Adelaide Zoo.

The new Variety Children’s Zoo is set to be an amazing play space for kids filled with interactive areas that allow them to get closer than ever to some of the zoo’s most popular residents.

Complete with areas for children of all abilities to play and explore, the new Variety Children’s Zoo will potentially feature things like balance beams and ladders for our charismatic goats, climbing branches for our friendly quokkas and a dedicated presentation area for keepers to share stories about their animal friends.


Located next to our ever-popular Nature’s Playground and connected via aerial walkways catering for all abilities, the Variety Children’s Zoo is set to be the first stop for families during their visit to Adelaide Zoo.

Help us make this epic area better than ever before!

Together, we can build a play space designed to stimulate your little one’s love of nature and inspire the conservationists of tomorrow.

Construction of the new Variety Children’s Zoo will commence in early 2019, so now is the time to help make this exciting project happen!

As a conservation charity, your support will help us build a wild new Variety Children’s Zoo!

Imagine your child, grandchild or loved one walking into our incredible new Variety Children’s Zoo and saying ‘I supported this and my picture is here to prove it!”

We’re so excited to be creating a larger-than-life art installation made up of the many amazing faces of our zoo community, and you can be a part of it.

Your images will be combined into a breathtaking representation of our most iconic animals, which will take centre stage in our new children’s zoo development.

For just $50, your child, grandchild, loved one or pet can be the face of Adelaide Zoo’s new immersive children’s precinct. Yes, you heard correctly. Your fur family qualifies to have their face as part of our art installation!

Make sure you’re part of it now. Have your face etched into Adelaide Zoo’s history at our new Variety Children’s Zoo.
