The Gruffalo at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo

“Oh help! Oh no! It’s a gruffalo!”

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the classic children’s picture book The Gruffalo, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, by encouraging families to embark on the Gruffalo Spotters Trail!

Explore and search for The Gruffalo and other characters from the story using the Spotters Activity Trail and exciting NEW Augmented Reality App!

Skip and stroll through the zoo like Mouse, wriggle around and hiss like Snake or sneak about on your tiptoes like Fox!

Immerse yourself in our Australian outback and find your favourite characters from the book using the free interactive App and the Spotters Activity book.

Follow the activity leaflet to see who Mouse meets along the way as you follow in his footsteps and stroll through the zoo. Use the fun and Interactive App to bring the characters to life and capture your precious memories!
