Visa Zoo Month
A roaring success! Visa Platinum’s first Zoo Month at Taronga 

Presidential sponsor Visa Platinum rewards customers with VIP treatment at Taronga and entertains zoo visitors with tiger activities.

Thousands of Zoo visitors enjoyed the vast array of activities and promotions offered as part Visa Platinum’s Zoo Month in March.  Visa Platinum cardholders were treated to an exclusive Red Carpet entry on the weekends, enabling them to skip the queues on busiest days at the Zoo. They were also offered a free child’s ticket with every full paying adult ticket purchased when using their Visa Platinum card.   

Visa Platinum cardholders weren’t the only ones to benefit, Visa cardholders who spent on their Visa card at Admission, at a Gift Shop or to pay for parking were automatically entered into a competition to win a Roar and Snore package for four people.  One package was given away every week in March with winners being drawn at random.

The Visa Platinum tiger facemask competition was a huge success with all visitors. To enter, visitors had to correctly answer two questions about Sumatran Tigers. The entry form was a tear away piece on the mask and the answers could be found at the Sumatran Tiger exhibit.  One lucky winner won a behind-the-scenes tour at Taronga with up to 9 of their friends.  

The highlight of the activities was the Visa Platinum’s Tiger Sundays at Safari Lodge. Between 11am and 3pm all visitors were treated to a range of free and fun activities, proving to be a real favourite with the kids.  Kids enjoyed having their faces painted like a tiger and the whole family were able to get up close and personal with some of the Zoo’s friendliest animals.  Kids were encouraging to roar like a tiger and were rewarded for their efforts by Visa with a soft plush tiger toy.   

The Sumatran Tiger is considered to be critically endangered with the two major threats to its survival being habitat destruction and poaching. Taronga Zoo is dedicated to raising public awareness of the plight of this species and the ways in which you can help. For more information click here.
