Preparing for your Visit

What to wear

As some sessions are outdoors and run in all weather conditions, it is critical that students bring weather appropriate clothing. This includes closed-toe shoes and raincoats/hats should rain be forecast.

What to bring

Please bring lunches and drinks in small bags or class tubs. We have some storage tubs available for lunch bags/boxes.

Where to arrive

Instruct your bus drivers to park parallel to the koala plantation which is left of the front entrance. Our Education Officers will meet you there to let you in at your scheduled arrival time.

Please arrive on time as late arrival will reduce break or session times.

How to behave

We wish all our visitors, including schools, have a positive experience so ask that some preparatory discussion with your students is undertaken regarding respect and care for animals.

We anticipate that all attending supervising adults will actively support the students’ respectful engagement with our wildlife. Our educators will also explain the expected behaviours at the beginning of the day.

The Wallaby Walk Guide (link) may help in this discussion.

Please find the Code of Conduct on page 3 of the attached document “Moonlit Sanctuary – Essential Information for Teachers” which is linked in the Health and Safety section below.
