National Zoo & Aquarium

Group entry

If you are visiting the Zoo in a group of 10 or more, you qualify for our special group rates on General Entry prices.

For an extra special experience why not book your group into a private tour. A guide will be available to lead you around the zoo and facilitate a variety of interactive animal experiences such and feeding a large cat or bear, meeting our natives and cuddling some reptiles. (animal cooperation dependant).

Prior Bookings are essential to receive discounted entry rates. (Note: Payment is not required at the time of booking, but is payable prior to or on arrival, when your final numbers are confirmed)

You will receive an itemised Tax Invoice by return email on completion of your booking. Any changes to numbers can be calculated prior to arrival, or on arrival at check in, and the costs adjusted accordingly.

Payment is required as a single total amount. Separate payments by individuals will not be accepted at the discounted rates.
