Step 3. Organise Transport
Transperth: Getting on-board with Transperth is both low-cost and environmentally-friendly. Buses 30 and 31 from the City will drop you literally at our front gate! Transperth can provide you with information on transport costs and help you plan your excursion route to Perth Zoo using public transport. Contact the Transperth Education Team on (08) 9326 3970, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website here. Remember! Off-peak travel only. Two weeks’ notice is preferred.
BYO & Chartered Bus: The safest way to drop students off is to enter the carpark off Mill Point Road and drive along the access road (10km/hr) and pull into a temporary bus bay to unload. Charter buses can then proceed to exit onto Labouchere Road and BYO buses can circle the block and park in the (free, limited) bus parking in the Mill Point Road parking area.
Step 4. Planning Tools
We know just how much work goes into getting your students to our door for an awesome animal experience. To say thank you, we’ve given you everything you might need for a stress-free excursion. Take the pain out of completing your Emergency Management Plan by using our comprehensive 'Zoo Excursion Management Plan' and customising it for your group. It includes insurance and liability information, emergency procedures, communication and security during your day visit. Make sure you haven't missed a thing with our handy pre-excursion checklist and download our map for schools to check out locations for meeting points, learning spaces, toilets, first aid room and help if you need it!

With the Zoo open every day of the year, this means that some exhibits and areas may be closed and animals off-display from time to time. Check on the day of your visit on our What’s Off Display and Under Construction at Perth Zoo (Link)
