Walkabout Tours are guided tours provided by one of our Education Officers. Key commentary is provided at select exhibits in accordance with the topic you have chosen. Walkabout tours can be up to 45 minutes in duration, and are best conducted for groups of between 10-15.

Advanced planning and bookings are essential. If you have any further questions about the content of our programs, or need help selecting one that is right for your group, please don't hesitate to contact us.

  • Australian Animals
  • Our sunburnt country is absolutely teeming with unique wildlife. On this Walkabout Tour we learn about how special our monotremes and marsupials are, and what makes them different to the mammals in the rest of the world. We also look at the ecological roles filled by Aussie wildlife, and how our animals differ from those on other continents.
  • Baby Animals and Aussie Icons
  • What could be cuter than woolly lambs, wriggling piglets and cuddly koalas? We take your students to the most interactive of our enclosures and examine the needs of the animals that live there, specifically how we provide them with food, shelter and water. We also consider the changes which take place as they grow.
  • Living in Wet and Dry Environments
  • Could you imagine a fish living up a tree; or a koala swimming around under the sea? I didn't think so! We go on a tour to check out the living and non-living elements of wet and dry environments and the differences between them. You might be quite surprised to find out just how well animals have adapted to living in these specific environmental conditions.
