A wild school holiday adventure at Cockburn Gateway
If you don't want the kids running wild for you at home during the school holidays, bring them to Cockburn Gateway Shopping City and let them off the leash.
The centre will play host to 'Come and Rumble in the Jungle', a fantastic program of animal activities that are perfect for budding zoologists, junior explorers and animal conservationists.
These wild activities are straight from the jungle and include a life-like animatronic elephant and gorilla, a jungle trail, jungle crafts and Perth Zoo's Junior Wild Vet Hospital program, all which will form part of the roaring great school holiday adventure line-up taking place from Monday, 2 July to Saturday, 14 July 2018.
Come and Rumble in the Jungle is all about getting kids exploring our natural world and learning more about the importance of conservation in a fun and engaging way.
