ZOOcation care at Adelaide Zoo

ZOOcation is a school holiday program for 5 – 12 year olds. Come along from 9am – 4pm and spend the day with a qualified Conservation Educator exploring the Adelaide Zoo.

Join us for an unforgettable ZOOcation experience. Spend the day getting to know all the animals that call Adelaide Zoo home.

The day is filled with fun, adventurous activities, games, animal presentations and time with new friends.

This is a popular program so be sure to secure your place.

The next ZOOcation Care program will be running in the July school holidays and is now available for bookings. If you are unable to attend in July but would like to be kept informed when the September/October program becomes available please email us and we will include you on our mailing list.
