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 adelaidezoo.com.au 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.
