Orang-utans need your help!
This winter, you can discover a secret that will help fight their extinction. But don’t worry, you won’t be alone. … Our super snoop, Barry the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, is ready to go undercover with you to help solve this mystery!
Clues will be waiting for you in some of the Zoo’s favourite undercover spaces ready to be de-coded, unraveled and solved before you arrive at the Orang-utan Sanctuary.
Just collect your clue card as you enter the Zoo gates and get to work! The clues will be given from special speakers installed around the Zoo grounds, including the Butterfly House, Wild Sea, the Reptile House, Keeper Kids and of course the Orang-utan Sanctuary. Each stop will be sure to point you in the right direction so you can find the next clue!
Once you’ve completed all the clues, head straight to your nearest Zoo Shop to complete and drop off an entry form to be in the running to win some amazing Orang-utan prizes!
Go Undercover runs for a limited time only this winter (ends Aug 31) … And don’t forget, kids are free every weekend, Victorian Government school holidays, and public holidays!
