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