Threatened Species Day
Saturday 7th September marks National Threatened Species Day in Australia and to mark the occasion, we are hosting a series of intimate tours on Saturday 7th September and Sunday 8th September.
The tours will be run by two keepers and will take guests on a journey that focuses on the threatened species within the zoo. Each guest will also receive a gift bag and tips to discover how people can help protect the future of threatened and endangered species in Australia.
The 90 minute tours are the perfect weekend activity for animal and conservation lovers or anyone keen to learn more about how they can help protect the threatened species in Australia.
- Learn all about Bub and Topsy, the Tasmanian Devils
- Find Jackie & Zoey, the Zoo’s Platypus pals, swimming in Platypus Pools
- Learn about Shiny and Opal - two Bilbies that are part of a breeding program designed to help save the species
- Feed the deadliest bird in the world - Princess, the Cassowary within the Daintree Rainforest exhibit
- Understand the importance of Green Tree Frogs in the eco-system
- Meet cute Koalas on Koala Rooftop and snap an up-close selfie
Guests will also get the chance to meet Kangaroos in Kangaroo Walk-About and the opportunity to venture into the restricted access territory amongst the daring world of Kakadu Gorge, where they’ll come eye-to-eye with Rocky, the huge Saltwater Crocodile, and much more!
Priced at $99 per person, $10 from each ticket sale will go towards the WILD LIFE Conservation Fund.
The tours will run exclusively on the weekend of 7th and 8th September at 10am and 2pm. Each tour has a maximum capacity of 10 people.
