Following Government advice on 24 September 2020, the Australian Reptile Park is thrilled to announce that we are recommencing on-site school excursions! Excursions will proceed while staff and visitors are adhering to our COVID-safe plan.

Guidelines of COVID-Safe Excursions at the Australian Reptile Park will be supplied to teachers during the booking process.

At the Australian Reptile Park, our aim is to make education fun and interactive for all students who visit. Our show “Living Things in Their Natural Environment” is catered to suit curriculum needs and outcomes whilst providing the highest level of student engagement. Teachers can also opt to choose one of three “add-on” topics to your educational show that correlate with key topics in the Science & Technology Syllabus. They are:

  • Lifecycles – with a focus on frogs

  • Ecosystems – with a focus on spiders

  • Conservation – with a focus on Tasmanian devils

The Australian Reptile Park’s school shows are interactive, educational and structured around key curriculum learnings. Animals we may feature in our school shows include the Koala, Tawny frogmouth, Alligator, Burmese python, a variety of lizards and pythons*. You can also cater it further towards your current unit of work with the added options of either frogs (lifecycles), Tasmanian devils (conservation) or spiders (ecosystems).

*Please note that animals are rotated for use in shows depending on availability

We understand the importance of child safety here at the Australian Reptile Park so we have tailored a ratio to ensure all children can be adequately supervised on our premises. To assist is facilitating this, we have a ratio system in which a certain number of adults are allowed free entry to supervise the students dependant on age. The ratios are as follows:

  • Preschool & Kindergarten – 1 adult for every 5 children
  • Years 1-6 – 1 adult for every 8 children

Additional adults are able to accompany the school for a reduced rate of $28 per person.

“The students had a great day seeing first-hand Australia’s native animals. They enjoyed the show and the experience of seeing the animals up close and getting to touch them as well. The staff were friendly, and the overall experience was fantastic.”

Girraween, St Anthony’s Primary

“It was a fabulous day for teachers, parents and students. It is very relaxing for teachers, as the Park is well set out and many staff are available to talk to and explain the animals. The children were kept very busy with the many exhibits you have to offer.”
