Summer School Holidays at Adelaide Zoo

Join Adelaide Zoo on a voyage and see a stunning digital installation bringing to life a selection of botanical and zoological watercolours from the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings at the National Museum of Singapore. This experience is free for Zoos SA members and under 4’s, and included with an Adelaide day ticket.

Then practice your drawing skills and learn all about the different plant species of Adelaide Zoo as you spot the new Cotton-top Tamarin babies hitching a ride or the pouncing Sumatran Tiger cubs.

Throw a picnic down and watch species like the Barking Owl and Blue and Gold Macaw soar over your head at the Free Flight Bird Show. Or see some of the zoo’s smaller species like Squirrel Gliders up close at the daily Wildshow.
