ZoosnooZ Availability Calendar

ZoosnooZ is a unique sleepover experience and a great way for your students to learn about animals and the environment.

Your students will:

  • Enjoy a great BBQ dinner under the stars
  • Discover wild creatures on your night zoo walk!
  • Get close to amazing animals with a special encounter and lesson in the Education Centre
  • Enjoy a yummy breakfast then go on a behind-the-scenes early morning walk
  • Spend the following day in the stimulating learning environment of the Zoo

ZoosnooZ is great fun and can be incorporated into any curriculum-related excursion for your students. It's also good for team building.
