Pat a koala and get really close. Your Zoo Keeper will tell you all about these adorable Aussie icons, now sadly under threat as a vulnerable species. Participants will then have some personal one-on-one time with one of our koalas while syringe feeding them. You will also hear about our world-renowned breeding programme. Don’t forget to charge up your camera/video for some great photos.
COVID-19 Encounter Guidelines:
