Can students attend a presentation?

Park Guides give daily talks for park visitors. Your school group is welcome to attend these talks and it is best to advise if you are attending when you make your group booking.

Wild Discovery Talks for school visits and/or animal encounters are: Monsoon Forest, Wetlands and Woodlands. Talks times to be confirmed on day of visit.

Toilets, taps and tucker


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.

Please read Territory Wildlife Park's Code of Conduct (pdf 12Kb) prior to your class visit.
