About

Meet a koala, get up close and personal with a slithery snake and watch as our kangaroos and wallabies are hand fed in an intimate virtual excursion with our amazing Rangers! Through the power of technology, students will be transported from their schools, bedrooms and living rooms to the grounds of Symbio Wildlife Park as they embark on an exciting and exclusive virtual adventure. Led by our experienced Rangers, students will be taken on a fully guided tour of Symbio Wildlife Park where they will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our amazing furry, scaly, and feathery friends! Students will discover a range of living things and identify their characteristics, needs, behaviours, and the environments in which they live. Students examine native and exotic animal species in custom enclosures that mimic native environments whilst recognising the contrasting external features of a variety of animals. With a focus on the basic needs of living things, students immerse themselves within a range of environments whilst getting up close and personal to Australian and exotic animals. Every student will be engaged and eager to participate in this fun and memorable program!
