Jungle fun for young explorers
Watch out for animals on the loose running wild around Rhodes Waterside Shopping Centre during the July school holidays. It's a safari like no other and it's free.

Fun awaits, as follows:-

Animal Zoo Safari Displays

See life-sized animatronic jungle animals lions, apes, tigers, a fancy striped horse and a whole lot more roaring and moving around as they do in the wild.

It's on during trading hours for exploration and all successful explorers will need a good map. You can collect one in the shopping centre or download it here.

Make it even more fun with your own competition and adventure around with friends to see who can spot all of them first.

Safari Tours

Bring your safari hat, grab some binoculars and embark on a tour around the centre, learning all there is to know about these wild creatures on display from the resident safari ranger.

Running Monday-Friday at 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm, spaces are limited so it's best to book at the customer service desk on the ground floor to ensure a spot.

Stories around the Campfire

Gather round a life-like safari setting for an adventure with tales as old as time.

Found opposite Cupcake Cafe, it takes place Monday-Friday at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm.

Monkey Bar

Monkey Bar, Rhodes Waterside Shopping Centre

Whilst on your journey go bananas at the brand new state-of-the-art playground, Monkey Bar. It has 6 metre high climbing towers, slides, a touch play learning activity zone and a soft play area for little monkeys.

You can find it next to Boost Juice on the ground floor.
