School Excursion

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.

Your visit will be fully guided by one of our zoo educators stopping along the way to answer questions and enhance students experience. You can also request one of our new animal encounters or add a lesson focus to meet curriculum needs. Our WILD Tour Program, conducted by our qualified zoo educators is linked to the Australian Curriculum.

  • Our WILD Tour Program meets the *NEW* NSW Science & Technology Syllabus for 2019.
  • We are an all weather facility with indoor seating.

Madame Tussauds Sydney

Discover more about our rich cultural history with your class and come face-to-face with some of our greatest national heroes such as Captain James Cook.


Sydney Tower Eye

An experience on the Sydney Tower Eye is the perfect way to bring lessons to life on a range of subjects. It's an eye-opener in every sense. Free binoculars and state of the art touch screens make learning even easier.



WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is fully wheelchair accessible and has extensive wheelchair facilities throughout the attraction, including lifts and shallow ramped walkways. 

Wheelchairs are available for free hire from guest services on arrival. This is completed on a first come first serve basis. 

Please note: we require a form of photographic ID as a deposit which is returned upon return of the wheelchair.
