Admission-only School Excursions

As we are an intimately sized park, and students are able to come into close contact with our wildlife, we do prefer to run a formal Education Program for most school groups, rather than book Admission-only excursions.

In special circumstances, we can accommodate excursions for Schools and Holiday care organisations, without the booking of a formal Education Program.

During the School Term

If our programs are already booked out, and no alternative date can be arranged, we can offer an Admission-only visit for groups of under 30 students. This is on the condition that we can comply with all COVID safe measures as well as other circumstances.

During the School Holidays

As we cannot run our formal Education Programs during School Holidays, we can offer Admission-only excursions for Holiday Care organisations. We prefer small group sizes (under 50 students) due to the general busyness of holiday periods.

If a group is larger than 50 students, we can work with you to arrange a timetable to help ensure we maintain the welfare of our wildlife and the enjoyment of all other visitors.

For example, we might divide the groups into separate visiting hours (AM and PM). Alternatively, the students can be segmented into smaller groups, and visit different zones of the park on a rotating schedule.


Please contact our Education Coordinator at education@moonlitsanctuary.com.au to discuss your situation.
