National Zoo and Aquarium

Unlike any other zoo experience, students visiting the National Zoo & Aquarium are immersed into the life of the wild. Whether meeting friendly animals or observing natural behaviours in their wild counterparts, the zoo offers a unique opportunity to connect with the wonders of the natural world. 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.
  • 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.)

Close to the city centre, the Zoo is conveniently located near other major attractions. Give yourself and  your students the opportunity to:

  • Take a break from your packed schedule.
  • Relax in picturesque and safe surroundings.
  • Eat lunch in the company of our amazing animal residents.
