National Zoo & Aquarium

Love wildlife photography? Want a chance to get closer to the action?

ZooFocus is a special guided tour that takes small groups behind the scenes for better vantage points to photograph many of the fascinating zoo animals.

With the direction of both a Zoo Guide and Photography Instructor, learn about the animals and how to get the most out of your camera. The tour begins with a ‘briefing’. This includes setting up your camera for the conditions of the day and the specific animals featured. Irene Lorbergs from Canberra School of Photography can help you understand the many settings on your camera. Irene will be on hand for questions and advice during the entire tour.

Each tour features three behind the scenes or special animal encounters. As the tour walks through the zoo, many other opportunities arise for those special shots.

Entry is free, so stay after the tour for more photographic fun.
