Come with us on a journey through the Australian bush

In this exclusive experience, you’ll have morning access to the zoo before it opens to the public.

Meet koalas, see kangaroos, head underground into the wombat’s burrow, and watch native birds soar on this amazing tour. It’s worth the early wake up.

Zoo entry not included. Be sure to also book your entry tickets for the same date as your encounter.
