Look for the bare necessities this school holiday
If you're looking for something a little bit different to get your animal loving child involved in this school holiday period, look no further than Perth's Zoo for inspiration. The Zoo Crew is a fantastic program offering your child a fun and educational animal experience where they can get to see some of the behind the scenes action of zoo life. So don't let the school holiday period turn your child into a little monkey, instead sign them up for a day of jungle loving fun.

The program is for kids aged 8-13 and will provide your youngster with a day filled with interactive animal experiences, hands on dealings with many facets of zoo life, crafts and games all in addition to getting the inside scoop on Perth Zoo.

The day runs from 9.30am until 3.30pm and children participating in the zoo crew program are asked to arrive 15 minutes early for registration. Children are free to remain in the zoo (free of charge) after 3.30pm as long as they are accompanied by a ticket holding parent or guardian. As a parent, if you have smaller kids, this might be a good excuse to spend the day in the park with the littlies whilst the big kid of the family enjoys their zoo crew experience.

Choose from 'Awesome Aussies' or 'Asian Adventures' for your zoo crew experience.
