Zoocation offers a unique experience for primary aged children. During a fun-filled day, children will get up close and personal with many of the zoo's animals, play games, make toys for the animals, and maybe even learn something along the way.

Staffed and developed by the experienced and qualified Education Guides of the National Zoo and Aquarium, this program prides itself on delivering a program like no other. Zoocation runs between the hours of 9am-4pm on week days during ACT school holidays.

• Runs for a maximum of 8 to 10 days during every holiday period.
• Sessions run from 9.00am - 4.00pm.
• Limited supervision available until 5.00pm ONLY
• Is open for children attending Primary School*
• Includes exciting animal-related activities every day (see session outlines)
• Exposes your child to the fascinating Zoological world

Bookings will open for our January sessions late November - OR - buy a Gift Voucher for FUTURE use.

Children are grouped according to the year they are attending at school, and tasks are designed for their social and developmental levels.
*It is important to book your child into the appropriate group according to the year they are in at school in 2018.
PLEASE DO NOT book younger children into the older group if there are no vacancies in the correct group.
