Taronga Zoo education programs inspire people of all ages to make a personal contribution to conservation. Through formal education and community programs, we aim to engage and influence attitudes to wildlife, encouraging positive behaviour changes towards protecting the environment and wildlife.
Our education team provides quality learning experiences and unique wildlife encounters for a wide range of people through curriculum-based education programs and workshops, indigenous education programs, sleep-over and holiday programs, professional development opportunities and community outreach.
With workshops tailored to teachers’ needs and in line with the NSW syllabus, taking advantage of Taronga Zoo's Education Centre means your class will get more out of their trip to one of our Zoos.
The subjects taught by our qualified educators vary depending on the children’s age and teachers’ wishes. Check here to see what we can offer you.
The wildest sleepover in NSW is a ZoosnooZ overnight stay. Your students will enjoy a BBQ, discover wild creatures on a night walk, and take a peak behind the scenes!
For a truly enchanting Zoo experience, bring your class along to a Twilight Safari, where students will enjoy a BBQ supper and discover wild creatures on a night walk.
Taronga’s famous Zoomobile offers school students the opportunity to meet and learn about native wildlife, even if they can’t get to the Zoo.
The Zoos’ Aboriginal Education Officers have developed a number of excellent Aboriginal education programs. These programs have been created in partnership with local Aboriginal communities and broadly aim to increase knowledge about Aboriginal culture and provide opportunities and support for Aboriginal students.
Taronga Zoo's Living Classrooms bring learning to life by immersing students in nature and letting them to interact with pythons, koalas and more.
