A special school holiday program just for 5 – 12 year olds!

Come along from 9am – 4pm and spend the day with a qualified Conservation Educator exploring the Adelaide Zoo.

Join us for an unforgettable ZOOcation experience. Spend the day getting to know all the animals that call Adelaide Zoo home.

The day is filled with fun, adventurous activities, games, animal presentations and time with new friends.

If your cheeky monkeys come during December they’ll have a blast creating festive holiday treats for our animals and you’ll be able to get that last-minute Christmas shopping done. If they visit during January, your little animals will come face-to-face with giant insects and dinosaurs and learn all about what life was like millions of years in the past.

This is a popular program so book early to secure your place.

You will be required to read and accept the ZOOcation Care terms and conditions before purchasing a ticket.

ZOOcation Care Terms and Conditions

There are 30 places per day, so don’t delay. You can book your child for more than one day however be aware that the ZOOcation Care program is the same each day and some of the experiences will be repeated, such as attending hands-on animal presentations.

Our ZOOcation Care leaders are qualified and registered teachers with the South Australian Teachers Registration Board.
