Enhance Your Excursion

Discover the WILD

WILD Discovery Tours - an exciting interactive tour for schools visiting WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s education programs are a professional, curriculum-based education service. We treat our animals as an educational resource, presenting them alongside educative programs, which allow your class to identify the different requirements of Australian flora and fauna. Our curriculum based guided programs are delivered by passionate educators, who inspire and engage students through the exploration and interactivity of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s amazing zones.

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo offers hands-on, interactive, curriculum based fully guided tours for Australian students visiting WILD Life Sydney Zoo in our WILD Tots (Early Childhood), WILD Kids (K - 6) & WILD Teens (7-12) programs.

Discover live birds, snakes, lizards, spiders, and insects, and explore our extensive animal artefact collection. Students can use  technology to enhance their learning and explore our various habitat zones and exhibits. After your guided tour with one of our zoo educators you can then spend free time with your students until you are ready to leave.
