After feasting on dinner, you’ll join your intrepid guide to see what some Australians get up to after dark! Supplied with your own flashlight, you’ll be led into the darkness to meet Australia’s creatures of the night. You’ll see crocodile eyes glow in the torchlight, learn how owls hunt, touch a possum and pat a koala. On clear nights the guides will take you star gazing to see the Southern Cross, Big Dipper and other well-known constellations.

You’ll also join the Zoo’s resident swagman and tame kangaroos for traditional billy tea and bush damper around the campfire, and enjoy great Aussie live entertainment. This fabulous fun night out is one to remember!

The food was plentiful and fabulous, the drinks were free flowing, and the zoo keepers were fabulous. This was the last event on our trip and was well worth every cent. So so so many animals, all in the nighttime, koalas and kangaroos as well as crocodiles and snakes. Oh my. It was all fabulous.
