To ensure a successful School Excursion with our animals we recommend arrival time at Billabong Zoo between 9:30am – 10am and a departure time of between 1:30pm – 2:15pm. This allows maximum animal experience time with morning tea and lunch breaks.
Zoo Keepers will take students on a tour of the wildlife park, with opportunities for hand-feeding the Kangaroos and Wallabies, patting a Koala, meet and greet with a Dingo and an up-close Reptile presentation. For each species the Keepers will discuss habitat, diet, survival characteristics, conservation status as well as many other interesting facts – the talks are geared to the age of the students.
Students will also get up-close to our Meerkats, Wombats, Penguins, a variety of Australian and exotic birds, Spider Monkeys, Red Pandas and our big cat exhibit area – cheetahs, snow leopards and lions. The group will also assemble in our grandstand for the ever-popular feeding and presentation of our Monster Crocodile – Shrek & so much more, depending on time allocated.. We care for over 80 species with over 200 animals throughout the 10 acre wildlife park set in beautiful gardens with koi ponds. Remember, we can tailor our School Excursion tour for your requirements.
