Zoocation, the school holiday program with a difference!

Zoocation offers a unique experience for primary aged children. During a fun-filled day, children will get up close and personal with many of the zoo's animals, play games, make toys for the animals, and maybe even learn something along the way.

Staffed and developed by the experienced and qualified Education Guides of the National Zoo and Aquarium, this program prides itself on delivering a program like no other.  Zoocation runs between the hours of 9am-4pm on week days during ACT school holidays.

Zoocation Junior: The Red Group: especially designed for children in Kindergarten and Year One, this program is targeted to the younger animal lover, with smaller groups and age-appropriate activities.

Zoocation; Yellow and Blue Groups:  for children in school Years 2 to 6. Zoocation is divided into two groups, providing age-appropriate programming for children across the Primary School age group. See the session outlines for more details of daily activities
