Construction Begins for New Variety Children’s Zoo at Adelaide Zoo

It has been announced that construction for Adelaide Zoo’s exciting new Variety Children’s Zoo is now underway.

The $1.1 million project will have kids connecting to nature like never before thanks to the interactive and immersive precinct adjacent to the ever-popular Nature’s Playground. Once construction is completed, quokkas, critically-endangered bettongs, goats and many more adorable animals will make the move to the new and improved Variety Children’s Zoo.
