School Excursions to Sydney

Important notice

After careful deliberation and with consideration to the current situation regarding COVID-19, we have had to come to the decision to postpone all face-to-face school education programs. 

We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause. However the safety and well-being of our guests, staff, and animals is always our highest priority. Please be assured Taronga is continuing to closely monitor the situation and we will keep you informed as to when normal bookings will resume again. 

In the meantime, we can connect with you and your students through our engaging digital programs. Read more about what you can book to stay connected and feel supported by Taronga’s Education team.

Bring your students to the Zoo

With over 100 years' experience, Taronga Zoo Sydney offers both teachers and students the opportunity to experience a self-guided, interactive, and hands-on learning environment. Suitable for all ages, students will get the chance to come face to face with wildlife, develop a deeper understanding of the importance of conservation and expand their knowledge of the natural world. 

Enjoy the Zoo with your school group at your own pace and encourage your students to be ambassadors for the wild.

What to expect

Our key animal trails focus on a range of habitats and purpose-built precincts, supported by over 15 animal keeper talks and shows running daily.

Free teacher resources

Free teacher resources are also available for your self-guided visit. Use our resources to structure your students’ learning before, during and after a Zoo visit. Our resources can be found on our curriculum-linked workshops pages.
