Animal Adventure at Adelaide and Monarto Zoos!
These school holidays go on an animal adventure throughout Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Zoo and learn about their featured animal residents.
Their Animal Adventures theme will allow your child to explore exciting animal facts and behaviours that make each of them unique and wonderful. The adventurous fun during the holidays includes a specially-themed activity trail, craft activities, Nature Theatre presentations and extra keeper presentations!
All this is free with zoo entry and free for members.
Plus, book into their unforgettable ZOOcation care experience for a fun-filled day of adventurous activities, games, animal presentations and time with new friends. This is a popular program so book early to secure your place.
Animal Farm Goolwa
At the Animal Farm Goolwa, from 10am to 4pm every day throughout the school holidays, you can feed the goats, lambs, chooks, emus and lots of other animals.
Children can interact with small animals in the barn and meet the rescue joeys, visit the newly hatched babies, look in on the mini-pigs, have a chat with their cocky and galahs, feed the donkeys or sheep in their paddocks. Take a free trailer ride too! The ever popular pony rides will also be available every day, subject to the weather, (be sure to book on arrival).
Why not enjoy a coffee and snack in the café too at Animal Farm Goolwa. Admission is just $8 per child and $10 per adult. Pony rides $5.
