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.

Animals of the Dreaming Zoomobile is an inspiring program combining two fascinating aspects of unique Australia – native animals and the Dreamtime. This program is delivered by Brewarrina Elder, Colin Hardy OAM and supported by our Indigenous zoo staff.

Col Hardy is the recipient of the Order of Australia, for recognition of his contribution to the community over many years. Col has also been recognised for his musical talent through the Tamworth Country Music Festival's 'Golden Guitar' award.

It is Zoomobile's honour to have Col co-present Animals of the Dreaming, delivering an engaging experience of storytelling and music and introducing participants to a wide variety of unique and wonderful animals, such as a frog, possum, lizard, snake, turtle or echidna.
