Wild At Home Tours 3

Merlin Entertainments launched their innovative, new ‘Wild at Home Tours’, a series of live and private virtual tours which bring two iconic Australian attractions, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo and SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, straight to you! 

From home-schooling to working from home and the daily walk around the park, it’s time to spice up the monotony of lockdown life and meet some of Merlin Entertainments’ furry and fin-tastic friends! 

From the comfort of your home, choose from meeting the best of Australia’s wildlife at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo or explore the majestic, underwater wonders at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium.

With three tour options available, the Wild at Home Tours offer something for everyone. From hanging out with Koalas and reptiles to getting up close with sawfish and Pig the Dugong, each tour provides an interactive and informative virtual experience. 

Guided by your very own knowledgeable WILD LIFE Keepers or SEA LIFE Aquarists, the 45-minute virtual tours take you on a journey to meet animals of all shapes and sizes, learn from animal experts and ask all of your burning questions, such as ‘why are a wombat’s poo shaped like cubes?’

Each Wild at Home Tour is sold separately and allows for up to 100 of your friends, family, and colleagues to join each tour, which makes it the perfect experience for:

  • Companies looking to reward their hardworking employees
  • Office managers looking to mix up their regular Friday zoom drinks with an animal adventure
  • Schools looking for interesting and educational ways to keep their students engaged in online learning
  • Universities with international students who are looking to encounter Australian wildlife without leaving their home
  • Large groups of family or friends who would like to shake up their next virtual social catch up
