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 other 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 have the capacity to book additional school groups on that date.
Please contact our Education Coordinator at email@example.com to discuss your situation.
During the School Holidays
Due to the increasing busyness of the Park during the holiday periods, we have phased out Admission-only visits for groups at this time.
Cost per student for admission: $15.00
Extra adults over the below ratios: $20.00 (to a maximum of 1:1)
Container Kangaroo food: $3.00 each (approximately 2 students)
Encounters: please see our website or speak to Admissions staff about availability, timing and pricing
All prices include GST
ADULT TO STUDENT RATIO
We require at least 1 supervising adult per 10 students to attend.
Foundation to Grade 2: 1 adult included free of charge for every 5 students
Grade 3 and above: 1 adult included free of charge for every 10 students
Carers and Aides (for students with physical or learning needs): 1 included per student
Ratios are calculated by rounding up. For example:
16 x Grade 1 students require 4 supervising adults
22 x Grade 5 students require 3 supervising adults.
It may be possible to reserve undercover seating for the group, but in most cases, our formal programs will be occupying these spaces.
Picnic tables are available around the front of the park.
Please ensure you have read all our preparatory information, which can be found on the below-linked webpage.
We expect that all attending Supervising staff will actively support the students’ respectful engagement with our wildlife. The responsibilities of Supervising staff are outlined in our Code of Conduct.
