Zoomobile for the Community

Zoomobile for the Community

Whether you’re a pre-school, childcare, vacation care, aged care or a business, we can complement your own program or event by bringing the Zoo to you with the Taronga Sydney Zoomobile. A Zoomobile visit provides the opportunity to go nose to nose with native Australian animals while learning about the roles of wildlife in the environment.

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 the community, 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.

Book one of the following Taronga Zoomobile programs for your community or corporate requirements.

Animal encounters

During a Zoomobile visit we will deliver an interactive experience tailored to your needs, bringing a wide variety of unique and wonderful Australian animals for you to meet such as Ink the Black Headed Python, Spike the Echidna and Puff the Bearded Dragon. Participants will take part in individual animal encounters and discover how they can help make a difference for the survival of these intriguing creatures.

Animals of the dreaming

This inspiring program combines two fascinating aspects of Australia – native animals and the Dreamtime. This program is delivered by Brewarrina Elder, Colin Hardy OAM, a highly respected Aboriginal elder and supported by our Indigenous Zoo staff.

Animal display

Perfect for community events, a Zoomobile animal display is a great way for individuals or small groups to informally learn about Australian wildlife. A minimum of two Taronga Sydney Zoo staff set up tables and enclosures for guests to view a selection of animals and answer questions throughout the display period (up to four hours). Where appropriate, Zoo staff may facilitate closer encounters with a few of the animals throughout the display.

Animal displays can be set up indoors or outdoors. The space requirements are 3x3m for the display and 5x4m for the Zoomobile van (must be next to display if outdoors, or next to the entry of the building if indoors). The Zoomobile provides everything needed for the display including marquee, tables, and display equipment, with no requirement for power. 

Corporates

We appreciate that businesses will have many special requests and requirements for a Zoomobile visit, so please get in touch with us to discuss your needs.
