Enjoy a family day out at a zoo where you can interact with native wildlife in a stunning bushland setting, whilst you spend time with your family in the school holidays, and connect with other local first responder families. It’s an opportunity to learn about Australian native animals, local threatened and endangered species, as well as learn ways to become involved and be active in helping our environment and endangered animals. Helping others can give you a sense of purpose and belonging, build friendships and make your community a better place. As an added bonus, you can explore a special exhibition and make your way through the wild forest to discover giant animatronic dinosaurs and megafauna around every corner! Lunch will be provided and allow participants to connect with other first responder families.
