Crikey, kids! We’ll be searching for buried treasure all around Australia Zoo these winter school holidays – and everyone’s invited!
Pick up your treasure map on admission and embrace your inner explorer by following the clues around the zoo. Will your voyage take you to South East Asia or Africa? Will you have to travel past native animals like kangaroos and koalas to find the treasure? Well, you’ll just have to get involved to find that one out!
The treasure hunt runs daily these school holidays, with successful explorers rewarded with a prize for their treasure-hunting efforts. Other rewards on the way could include a glimpse of our adorable new baby camels Luna and Gypsy, or if you make it down to Africa, there’s a chance more baby animals could be coming your way.
That’s right, both Sally and Penny the giraffes are heavily pregnant and could give birth around July –what a treasure that would be! Look out for their big bellies from our authentic African savannah, where you can also catch a glimpse of baby Giraffe Skye who is still looking as cute as ever!
But if that’s not enough for you, why not step up the action with our Zoo Keeper for a Day program? Kids can go behind the scenes and get up close with our wildlife to enjoy a day in the life of an Australia Zoo keeper. The kids will get to take part in feeding and enrichment time with an array of animals – and need to be prepared to get dirty with a bit of cleaning too! We promise you that it’s all just too much fun, so be sure to book your place in one of the Zoo Keeper for a Day programs run exclusively during school holidays.
Whether you’re putting on your explorer or your zoo keeper hat, kids will enjoy finishing the day with a ride on the enormous inflatable croc slide or one of the school holiday pony rides. There’s major prize draws, free face painting in the morning, and live music from the 5th - 11th of July in the Crocoseum by Becc Holdorf.
Australia Zoo will be open every day these school holidays so be sure to bring the adventure-loving explorers down to hunt for buried treasure, meet our amazing wildlife, and to win some great prizes! Grab your tickets here: https://australiazoo.centaman-apac01.net/BuyTickets/tabid/56/Default.aspx/
