Celebrate 140 Years of Adelaide Zoo | 27 May 2023

Tails Gone By…

Discover a fascinating series of historical images depicting the zoo through the years and see how far Adelaide Zoo has come since they first opened in 1883.

‘Tails Gone By’ shows the journey Adelaide Zoo has taken through original exhibits, iconic species and past directors of Zoos SA in all their Victorian finery.  The exhibition shows how animal welfare and the conservation of species has progressed to the point where they are so much more than just for pleasure; they are a place for education and driving conservation change.
