At the Australian Reptile Park, our aim is to make education fun and interactive for all students who visit.

For on-site excursions to the Australian Reptile Park, we offer curriculum-based School Shows, tailored for students from Early Stage 1 through to Stage 3.

A primary school excursion to the Australian Reptile Park will assist students in learning key concepts for the ‘Living World’ component of the Science & Technology K-6 Syllabus.

Each show is highly engaging for students with hands-on animal interaction to complement key learning outcomes and teachers to a Stage-specific digital toolkit for in-class learning.

School Shows are included in the cost of entry for excursions.

We understand the importance of child safety here at the Australian Reptile Park. 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 $43.99 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.”
