Zoosnooze: overnight secondary program

An Adelaide Zoo Zoosnooze includes facilitated education sessions and guided night walks, highlighting important animal and habitat conservation issues.

Students sleep in tents on the rooftop of the Westpac Envirodome and wake to the sounds of gibbons singing and lions roaring.

The program starts at 5.00pm however you can arrive at the Zoo at your convenience any time during Zoo open hours. A night orienteering activity and guided walk follows the BBQ tea, highlighting important animal and habitat conservation issues. In the morning, after the sleepover, the program includes a close-up animal encounter.
