This is a Defence Member and Family Support event

NOTE: This event is only for Australian Defence Force members and their families.

ADF members and families in Adelaide are invited to join us for an evening of family fun at the Adelaide Zoo. A range of community groups and organisations will provide information about support, assistance and activities available in the area. Bring a picnic, or refreshments can be purchased from the Zoo Café.

Metered parking is available in the streets surrounding the venue. Parking is free after 6.00pm. We have also arranged free parking at the Torrens Parade Ground, which is a short walk from the Zoo.

Walkways and trails are accessible for individuals with strollers or wheelchairs. Unfortunately Zoos SA are unable to allow assistance animals on site at Adelaide Zoo.

Register by 31 January 2022. Due to limits on capacity imposed by the Zoo, every attendee, including infants 0-3 years old, will require a ticket. You must register each attendee’s name for this event.
