After a sold out 2021 season, Light Creatures is back to take you behind the gates of Adelaide Zoo after dark!

A nocturnal adventure for the whole family and featuring a few appearances from the zoo’s own furry and feathery residents, Light Creatures is back and set to be bigger and even wilder than before.
