Join our Teddy Bears’ Picnic!

Sunday 29 August 2021

Bring the kids and their favourite teddy along for a bear-y exciting birthday bash with our black-and-white duo. Grab your picnic rug and hamper and set up at one of the many grassy spots around the zoo’s gardens like Central Lawns, Jewels of Asia and Seal Bay.

Your little ones will love Mr Oopy’s Bubble Show (the best Bubble Show in Aus!), airbrush tattoos in Nature’s Playground and Build-A-Bear pop-up shop. Plus, they’ll receive a free Melba’s chocolate teddy on arrival!
