Do you have an animal lover in your house? Or specifically a giraffe lover? Well, listen up because the 21st of June is WORLD GIRAFFE DAY & we have some fun ways to celebrate across Adelaide. Check out these ideas below – stick your neck out & get planning!
Visit Jungle In Willunga
Take a drive down south & stop in at the fantastic plant nursery that is Jungle In Willunga. The kids can hunt in the jungle for all of the animals, including a giraffe! Have some photos with it & then head inside to do some plant shopping for yourself!
Head to Monarto Safari Park & check out the new Visitor Centre. Before you go however, book a Giraffe Feeding Experience to get up close & personal with Monarto’s gorgeous journey of giraffes (yes, that is the collective noun!)
Book tickets to Light Creatures
Light Creatures is running from 29th June – 23rd July 2023 at the Adelaide Zoo as part of Illuminate Adelaide & some stunning glowing giraffes will be part of the event. Kids will love wandering through the Zoo at night discovering the lit up animals.
Visit the giraffes at the Adelaide Zoo
The Adelaide Zoo is home to two beautiful giraffes, including playful Nolean who was born in 2020. Enjoy watching them as they have something to eat & marvel at thes beautiful creatures.
Visit the giraffe at Port Noarlunga!
The Jubilee Playground at Port Noarlunga (or wooden playground as it is locally known) is home to a giraffe! Take the kids for a play at this fantastic playground (a good part of it is fenced too – win!) & they can stand right underneath the giraffe between it’s legs. Lucky it’s fake if ya know what I’m sayin….
