What to expect

Do you know what to do if you get bitten by a spider? Our Keepers will take you through a web of spider facts, such as where their two(!) stomachs sit, and whether their legs can grow back. You’ll also get an up-close look at our eight-legged Australians such as the Sydney Funnel-web Spider, the Redback, and the Huntsman.
