Home of the Aussie BIG 5 Animals!
WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is a unique Zoo found right in the heart of the city, located in Darling Harbour.
We provide students with a hands on and up close opportunity to discover and interact with our animals in a intimate environment.
You can opt for either a self-guided tour through the zoo with your students OR your visit can be fully guided by one of our zoo educators on a living world topic area, stopping along the way to answer questions and enhance the students’ experience. Students on one of our WILD Tour program will also get the opportunity to meet and encounter some of our animals too.
- Our WILD Tour Program, conducted by our qualified zoo educators is linked to the Australian Curriculum and NSW STEM syllabus.
- We are an all weather facility with indoor seating.
Oh help! Oh no! It's a Gruffalo!
From November through to March 31, our younger school visitors can add The Gruffalo experience to a self-guided zoo tour at no extra cost. Characters from the story can be found throughout the zoo and logged by students in a special spotters booklet. A free app is also available, providing photo opportunities for your class with The Gruffalo himself. For more information on The Gruffalo experience visit our self-guided tours page. Book now to secure your tour while spots last!
What question would your students most like to ask our keepers?
Kids have the most inquisitive minds, their questions range from the weird to the wonderful and we love them all! Why not share this video with your class and invite your students to send in their burning questions to our keepers and aquarists. We will send a personal reply and will choose the best ones to answer as part of our next video! Closes 30th April.
