There are four essential steps to organising your excursion to Perth Zoo.
- Decide what type of excursion
- Submit a booking request
- Organise transport
- Use our range of planning tools for a stress-free excursion
Step 1: Education Experience or Self-guided?
Step one is to decide what type of excursion you would like. You may choose to manage a self-guided experience yourself or have one of our experienced educators deliver a 45 – 60 minute education experience. Click on the links below to find out more about our curriculum linked programs.
All schools are required to make a booking for all Zoo visits and programs to access our special pricing.
|Education Experience (includes entry)*
||Cost per student
|Primary and Secondary
||$13.25 (GST exempt)
||$20.25 (GST exempt)
|Self-guided Visit (entry only)
|Primary and Secondary
||$10.00 (GST exempt)
||$17.00 (GST exempt)
* Please note education experience bookings require a minimum of 10 students. The pricing above is for our 45-60 minute programs only.
We want you to be able to supervise your students fully and fulfil your duty-of-care and so we provide free admission for supervising adults on the following ratios:
- K – 3 : One adult per five children (1:5)
- 4 – Tertiary: One adult per ten students (1:10)
Additional adult helpers pay regular Zoo admission. Perth Zoo offers free entry to carers or essential companions of those with particular needs. We accept the national Companion Card or a letter from a recognised care/social service organisation. The principal of the school needs to provide a letter identifying the carer/essential companion/Education Assistant (Special Needs) that will be accompanying your group.
