I really like Adelaide Zoo, it's pretty low key and relaxed but it's also got heaps of great exhibits, it's easy to get around and to get to, it's cheaper than Taronga and now it's even got Pandas! We didn't think we were going to get to see them as you have to book ahead but the nice ticket lady gave us some passes to get in. The 30 minute queue was worth the wait as they put on a pretty good show. We also saw lots of other stuff, and Jon had to chase down a goat that a dorky parent managed to let escape from the double gated petting zoo. In fact it was lucky we didn't all get stampeded in the rush of animals leaving the petting zoo - I think they know what to do when they see dorky parents and open gates as suddenly bambi and the gang were up and hustling to get out. Happily only the one goat escaped and Jon didn't get sprung by a zoo keeper as it might have looked like he was making off with an alternative Christmas Lunch.
