School holiday program.

This fun, educational holiday program for kids aged 5 to 11 years old will take them on an exciting zoo journey to learn about animals and the environments they live in.

About this program

Children will be amazed and excited on this unique school holiday program, as they join in animal themed activities and meet our wonderful keepers who care for the animals that live at Taronga Zoo Sydney.

Please note that children carry their bags all day to the Zoo Adventures activities. To be prepared for all weather, we also suggest you bring sunscreen and wet weather gear, just in case.
