Step inside the gates of Adelaide Zoo after dark and enter a whole new world. In an enchanting twist on the animal kingdom, Light Creatures blends nature and imagination for a wild night like no other.

Adelaide Zoo and Illuminate Adelaide, in collaboration with A Blanck CanvasElizabeth CloseJack BuckskinJimy McGilchrist and Monkeystack, invite you to discover illuminations and large-scale lanterns inspired by the colourful and captivating characters of the zoo’s regular residents – from giant pandas rolling playfully across the iconic lawns to towering giraffes reaching to the night sky. And, when it’s time to rest, you can soak up the winter market experience and enjoy a selection of warming food and drink at the cafes, pop up stalls and bars.

Embrace the winter nights and bring the entire family along to explore, discover and interact.
