The Territory Wildlife Park is located 60kms south of Darwin and is situated on 400hectares of natural bushland, which includes a variety of diverse habitats including Wetlands, Woodlands and Monsoon Forest.
These natural, well established habitats provide an excellent backdrop to display an equally impressive range of native flora and fauna, making it an essential introduction to the Top End’s wildlife and habitats.
The Park offers school groups the opportunity to use the Park’s facilities and the expertise of its guiding and zoo keeping staff, to deliver educational programs on a variety of topics and themes.
We have a range of outdoor venues and exhibits that can be used as living classrooms, where students can immerse themselves in real habitats and interact with living creatures, an experience far more memorable and engaging than any text book!!

Toilets are located at the Main Station, near the Aquarium and at the Monsoon Forest (See Park map for details). It is recommended that you plan toilet stops at appropriate times during your visit.
Drinking water taps are located throughout the Park, but it is recommended that each student bring a named water bottle to avoid congestion. This is especially important if the weather is hot.
Kids usually need one or more food breaks during a visit. Food and drink may not be taken on the trains or into the Aquarium or the Nocturnal House. Rubbish bins are provided throughout the Park.
Seating areas for eating can be found in the Picnic Ground behind the Main Station. Class food boxes may be stored behind the Guide’s Information Desk.
There is a cafe on site, which provides snacks or meals and can cater for groups with prior notice. An adult must accompany students at all times in the cafe.
The picnic area also has a shaded playground area for use at recess and lunch breaks.
