Rainy Day Kids Activities in Sydney

Rainy Day Kids Activities in Sydney

Although summer is here, there’s always the chance that we’ll get some less than desirable wet weather. So when you want to get the kids out of the house, consider a visit to WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, a great rainy day kids activity.


An indoor attraction

Almost all of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is undercover, making it one of the best things to do in Sydney when it’s raining. Get up close to iconic Australian animals, including the Aussie Big 5, all while remaining dry and sheltered from the outside elements.


Never stop learning

Even though school is out for the summer, the learning doesn’t have to stop. A visit to WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo can educate kids and adults about native Australian animals and their habitats. Listen to our daily talks from our informative keepers and learn about the animals that call WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo home and their unique personalities. Why not play some educational games too with your child, try counting animals, or even asking them to read aloud the information displayed on the screens around the attraction. You might even learn a few ways you can change your daily habits to help protect these beautiful species.


So much to explore!

At WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, you can get up close and personal with iconic Australian animals. Come face-to-face with our huge saltwater crocodile, Rocky, or step inside the koala enclosure for a Koala Encounter, complete with a photo to take home. A visit to Butterfly Tropics is also a must as you can experience the tropical climates as butterflies flutter around you. Plus with so much more, there really is a lot to explore at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.


If the rain hasn’t eased, consider one of our multiple attraction passes that allow you to combine your visit to WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo with SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, Madame Tussauds Sydney and Sydney Tower Eye. There are so many ways to keep the kids entertained on those wet and rainy days in Sydney. Plus, our multiple attraction passes are valid for 30 days, so see it all in 1 day or spread it across multiple.
