About Farmyard & Sustainability at Symbio

Cuddle the lambs, feed the goats and frolic with kangaroos on this unforgettable and exciting day at Symbio Wildlife Park! During this interactive and hands-on excursion, students embark on guided tours observing how living things are used to meet our needs. Students discover how plants and animals can be used as food and ways in which materials are used for clothing and shelter. Through integrated learning experiences, students recognise which foods come from a farm and discuss the ways in which we care for animals. With a focus on farm animals and sustainability in agriculture and daily life, students immerse themselves within a farmyard environment and get up close and personal to a range of baby animals. They investigate seasonal changes and discover how these affect our environment and a range of native Australian animals. With the additional option of hand feeding, every student will be engaged and eager to participate in this fun and memorable day!
