Ade­laide Zoo Home to the only gi­ant pan­das (Wang Wang and Funi) in the south­ern hemi­sphere, the Ade­laide Zoo has more than 300 species of an­i­mals. From bee­tles and bugs to rep­tiles and fish, this small zoo has beau­ti­ful gar­dens to ex­plore as part of a ter­rific fam­ily day out. Ar­rive early to catch the an­i­mals at their hun­gri­est and re­mem­ber to pack a pic­nic lunch for your­self – there’s plenty of shade on the well-man­i­cured lawns, as well as pic­nic ta­bles and park benches. The hands-on Chil­dren’s Zoo gives lit­tle ones the chance to touch and feed an­i­mals such as kan­ga­roos, goats, deer and sheep. See ade­laide­ River Tor­rens Lin­ear Park Trail Hire a bike from Lin­ear Park Bike Hire in El­der Park or take ad­van­tage of the Ade­laide City Bikes scheme and use one for free. The trail runs through the city cen­tre, past the zoo to West Beach, about an hour away.

If you head north to Hen­ley Beach, you can stop for lunch and a swim be­fore catch­ing the train or rid­ing back.
