A Living Classroom

Every year our living classroom offers thousands of students the chance to explore and connect with nature and learn all about the animal world.  It’s easy to walk around even for the littlest of legs and a perfect day out sunshine or rain as half our exhibits are under cover.

Education groups include ECE, primary, intermediate, composite, special needs, secondary, language and tertiary schools.
