  • Location: Canberra, ACT
  • Product code: WOW

We believe the Wonders of Wildlife (WOW) 
experience is the most hands-on and interactive approach to conservation education anywhere in the world. You will spend the majority of your day working very closely with many of our larger and more dangerous animals. These activities are vitally important, fun and enriching for these animals. This unique encounter is once-in-a-lifetime and is not something
an average zoo visitor would have the opportunity to see or experience.

The WOW Tour visits
many of our animals—activities may include*


Patting the amazing Rhinos

Hand feeding the giraffes

Meeting and feeding lions, tigers and sun bears

Interacting with our Meerkats

Helping to train our Tree Kangaroos

Visiting our off-display reptile collection

Going in with a cheetah and seeing this amazing animal up close

Hiding breakfast for our Sun Bears

Lunch included


Designing food puzzles for our monkeys to solve

*While every attempt is made to include these animals during your day we cannot guarantee it, or the outcome/level of interaction—due to unforeseen circumstances (eg off display due to veterinary matter or enclosure maintenance), behaviour of the animals, or simply running out of time during the busy schedule.
