Full description
Discover one of the largest open-range zoos in the world with a 1-day entrance ticket to Monarto Zoo. Spanning more than 1,500 hectares, just 50 minutes (70 kilometers) drive from Adelaide, the zoo is home to more than 50 species of exotic and native mammals, birds and reptiles.

Upon arrival, meet a troop of cheeky chimpanzees, encounter one of Australia’s largest pride of African lions and get up close with the rhinoceros. Located at the gateway to the picturesque Murraylands region, Monarto Zoo requires a 4 to 5-hour visit to get the most out of the experience.

You can journey aboard the Zu-loop shuttle bus and see animals roaming free in the open savannah. Hop on-and-off at each of the viewing platforms for up-close experiences with lions, giraffes, chimpanzees and more. If you are feeling adventurous, explore on foot and stroll from viewing platform to viewing platform along almost 10 kilometers of walking tracks through the bush.

Benefit from a wide range of zookeeper talks and animal feeds, held every day, and interact with the friendly staff to learn about the unique residents. Monarto Zoo opened in 1983 as a breeding and pasture area, and officially opened to the public in October 1993. Now home to more than 500 animals, roaming vistas as far as the eye can see, it’s an escape from the city that immerses visitors in a natural safari-style setting.

Over the years Monarto Zoo has celebrated outstanding breeding success and its quirky and unique animals have captured the hearts of visitors from across the globe. Owned and operated by the conservation-based charity, Zoos SA, Monarto Zoo is a must-see site for any visitor to Adelaide!
