St Patrick's Day
17th March

Leaping leprechauns! It's as wild as St. Patrick's Day gets as Australia Zoo GOES GREEN to celebrate on Monday, 17 March.

Take part in our “wife”-carrying race to win your wife’s weight in gold. And yes, you did hear that correctly – we’ll give the winner their wife’s weight in liquid gold (that’s beer for all your Irish folk!) if they are the fastest to complete our obstacle course. All you need to do is grab a “wife” (it can be a friend, sister, daughter or stranger, as long as they are over 18 years of age and happy to participate), , and race around our track for approximately 200m while carrying your wife. You’ll have to carry your wife while you take part in a slip and slide, run through sand, do some limbo and jump some hurdles – and that’s just part of it. You’ll have to smooch one of our beautiful animals too, and be the fastest to get around the track to win!

Nestled in the heart of the rainforest, the event will raise much-needed funds for Rainforest Rescue's Save the Cassowary campaign, specifically the care of three orphaned cassowary chicks, part of the incredibly endangered Australian population.
