ZooSnooz Overnight Program

ZooSnooz Overnight Program

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 creatures to spend a night with ours!  

ZooSnooz is the ultimate overnight excursion that your students will remember for years to come! Fall asleep to the sounds of nocturnal marsupials and wake to the morning roars of our big cats. 

What's involved

Your ZooSnooz experience will include:

  • A classic Aussie BBQ dinner cooked by our Billabong Camp Hosts
  • Night walking tour visiting some of our Australian native animals
  • Supper under the stars
  • Continental breakfast overlooking the Billabong 
  • Exciting morning walking tour
  • Entry onto the Zoo Circuit either the day of arrival or the day after your ZooSnooz

At the Zoo

Set in the picturesque grounds of Billabong Camp, ZooSnooz provides an exciting Aussie bush camping experience (for up to 90 people including adults) without the fuss. Through evening and morning walks students will learn about the care and conservation of native animals and those from around the globe.
