Melbourne Zoo

Kids Go Wild

Go wild these school holidays and experience the sights and sounds of Melbourne Zoo.

Designed especially for primary school students*, this full day program will take you on a journey to see some of our amazing animals that call Melbourne Zoo home.

The day will start getting to know your Kids Go Wild Leaders and fellow group members before your adventure around the Zoo commences. Throughout the day you will get the chance to hear from our keepers and learn what makes our animals so special, play games and participate in fun activities with other kids who are as wild about animals as you are.

Kids Go Wild is an outdoor, all-weather program; be prepared for rain, hail and sunshine. In the event of inclement weather, outdoor sessions will be substituted for indoor activities.
