About Farmyard & Sustainability Only at Symbio

A visit to Symbio Wildlife Park will give your students the opportunity to get up close to native and exotic animals, and observe the habitats in which they dwell. Let our experienced Rangers teach your students about the characteristics of some of Australia’s oldest species, as well as the exotic tales of our non-native animals. Students will have the opportunity to observe a variety of different enclosure environments such as rainforests, water lagoons, bushland, and explore how these environments are connected to people/ animals, and how they are crucial to our natural world. Students can hand-feed farmyard animals, kangaroos and wallabies, while investigating where food comes from and how we use it to care for animals. On these guided walks, students will learn and investigate how plants and animals are used to meet our nutritional needs, and develop their understanding of how living things and their environment play a crucial role in the support and survival of the human race.
