Full day programs
Each school term we hold one-off events and programs at our Zoos in Sydney and Dubbo, in addition to the curriculum focused workshops. These full day experiences are designed to increase student engagement with nature and sustainability.
Students can explore our Zoos from a completely new angle as the sun goes down. Enjoy dinner under the stars, discover wild creatures on a private night walk and get to meet amazing animals up close.
Twilight programs are available at both Taronga Zoo Sydney and Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo.
Wild Ropes for schools
Get out of the classroom and immerse yourself in nature, right in the heart of Sydney. Students will challenge themselves and work as a team on our high ropes course while they master suspension bridges, tunnels, obstacles and flying foxes.
