Celebrate Colourful Creatures these July school holidays

These July school holidays jump into a world of colour and get ready to create your own outback adventure story book! 

Have you ever noticed the unique and vibrant patterns and colours of our Australian animals? Ever wondered why a Butterfly is so brightly coloured? Or why Koalas have speckled bums? Find out all this and more!

Venture through WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, and create your own adventure storybook based on your encounters and experiences through the attraction, plus learn about the colourful creatures which call Darling Harbour home! Weave your own tale as you encounter the creatures at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, try and spot our beautiful Cassowary, draw your own Monarch Butterfly, count the Red-Collared Lorikeets and see what our Kangaroo Island joeys are up to!

Then bring your story book to life and recount the sights, smells, textures and emotions, making for the ultimate take home souvenir to always remember their ultimate day out!


WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s Colourful Creature activities will be running from Saturday 29th June to Sunday 4th August

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is open every day 10 am - 5 pm (last entry 4 pm).

How Much? 

It's FREE! All Colourful Creatures activities are included in your admission ticket! 



During your visit this July don't forget to snap a picture at our photo opportunity for your chance to WIN a colourful prize!

Be sure to tag us and use the hashtag #ColourfulCreatures to go in the running to have your adventure storybook come to life and receive your very own professionally printed copy, written by YOU!
