  • Visit to Lorikeet Lookout to feed our group of Rainbow Lorikeets
  • Head up the Snail Trail to the Discovery Centre, looking out for the Lions, Lemurs, Hunting Dogs & Sea Lions as you go!
  • Once at the Discovery Centre you will enjoy a hands on creature feature session where your students will meet some of the Zoo’s friendly smaller animals.
  • The tour will conclude with a meerkat feeding experience.

You are then free to spend the rest of your day exploring the Zoo!
