Welcome to Perth Zoo

In this fun and interactive experience students discover the Noongar seasons and names for animals found in the South West. Through story, costume and animal observations, students explore and celebrate the differences between animals, and how their bushland habitat provides for their survival.

Overview

Gwabba Boodja is a fun and interactive educational experience. Students are introduced to the six Noongar seasons and how they can provide a deeper understanding of what is happening in the bushland habitat throughout the year. After discussing the current season and its characteristics, an original story of animals celebrating the season is shared. Through this, students discover the Noongar names of animals found in the South West and their different needs for survival. Students then extend their knowledge by using their observation skills to explore the Bushwalk while wearing colourful native animal costumes. Groups develop their language skills by reporting back on their observations and together we identify actions we can take to care for our bushland habitats.
