Unlike any other zoo experience, students visiting the National Zoo & Aquarium are immersed into the life of a zookeeper. Whether it is meeting friendly animals or learning what it takes to care for wild animals, it is sure to be a memorable educational experience. Book now for an exciting Discovery Learning Session.

A one-hour Discovery Learning Session includes:

  • Immersive educational experiences, with front row seats to animal feeding and enrichment opportunities, and animal habitats.
  • Reptile interactions.
  • Entry to the Zoo for the whole day.
  • Unique, fun and unforgettable experiences.

Our highly trained education team expertly guides our Discovery Learning Sessions. All sessions are Australian Curriculum based, covering a variety of topics, including habitats, adaptations and endangered species. (Please see our website for the complete list of topics.) 

Activity packs are available to those who wish to expand the learning experience beyond the Zoo.
