Adelaide Zoo

It's home to the only 2 giant pandas in Australia – they're definitely worth the visit. The zoo has various experiences you can try out; hand-feeding the lions and tigers, giving a hippo a mouth check or having breakfast with a sun bear. If you're willing to try something different the zoo offers quite a different sort of camping experience as well. The zoo is located just a short commute from Oaks Horizons which you should definitely check out – it is a very reasonably priced and super-luxurious accommodation Adelaide CBD has to offer.
