Need to know


We’re committed to keeping you, our staff and our animals safe - but this does mean some changes to the usual experience.

While our QBE Free Flight Bird Show is still in full-flight twice a day and FREE with Zoo entry, we are carefully monitoring guest capacity in our amphitheatre and only allowing a maximum of 250 guests per show. This allows for safe social distancing with seating 1.5m apart, we thank you for your understanding.
