School and Private Tours


Free tours for schools, pre-schools and community groups, we are a private zoo located in Mount Evelyn on the edge of the Yarra Valley. Our primary reason for inviting groups free of charge is to assist our zoo keepers who are well supported through the national disability insurance scheme, gain experience and confidence when dealing with the general public. We also provide free transport in our bus up to 19 passengers within 10kms of the zoo. The tour lasts around 1.5 Hours from 10.30 am to 12pm.
