Kids Get Wild!

Pancake Millie Crop C

During the upcoming Queensland school holidays, the popular Kids Get Wild! programme returns.

We invite kids to have fun enjoying  exclusive interaction with some of our friendly natives—those that aren’t featured during the regular wildlife talks.  You could:

Meet Blossom the possum, and stroke her soft fur. Get up close to a prickly echidna. Visit the new Lizard Garden and hold some awesome reptiles. Toss a few grapes to the cassowaries. Maybe even see the amazing perentie leap high into the air to grab his breakfast!

To finish up, cheer on your favourite racing reptile in your very own turtle race on the edge of the billabong.

There is no charge for this little adventure and no need to book ahead (Regular entry fees to Billabong apply): Meet your Ranger by the koalas at 9:15. We’ll be all done by 10:00 in time for the regular cassowary feeding show. Available Monday through Friday each week of the Queensland spring school holidays.
