Melbourne Zoo's school holiday program is back, bigger and better than ever with Kids Go Wild!

Children will have an action packed day, visit secret areas of the Zoo, meet animals up close, chat to Zoo keepers, take part in craft and games, and have fun with other kids who are as wild about animals as they are!

Kids Go Wild runs every weekday of the school holidays!*  The program is designed for primary school children aged 5 to 10 years old, however 11 to 12 year olds are also welcome. Five years olds must be currently attending primary school.

As this is an outdoor, all-weather program, we encourage participants to bring a raincoat in case of rain as well as a hat and sunscreen to ensure they are sunsmart. Participants must bring and wear a hat in the spring and summer program.

*Please note: While all efforts are made to ensure activities and experiences vary on a daily basis, due to animal availability and weather conditions, repetition of some activities may occur. Please be aware of this when booking for more than one day.
