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. Drop off time is 9am, and pick up at 4pm.

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