Free outdoor learning

We’re inviting school children to come and visit our outdoor classroom for free during next week’s planned teacher strikes.

On Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 March, we’re offering complimentary entry for one child with every full paying admission.

Listen to our extended Presenter-led educational talks programme, when you can find out about our conservation work and discover some cool facts about our amazing animals as you tour the 40-acre site – including our Southern cassowary, Zeus, whose species is the closest living relative to the dinosaur!

With more than 200 different species at DZC, there’s lots to learn!

To claim the free child admission, tickets must be pre-booked in advance HERE.

(The free ticket option is at the bottom of the list and is only valid on either March 15 or 16).

Only pre-booked online tickets will be accepted on the day.
