ZooSnooz Overnight Program

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 that can only be heard from inside the zoo.

At the Zoo

ZooSnooz provides an exciting Aussie bush camping experience without the fuss, while teaching your students about the care and conservation of animals from across the globe. Set in the grassy grounds of Billabong Camp at Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo, your ZooSnooz host will show students and teachers to their pre-erected tents, overlooking the Billabong.
