Bookings are now open for the next Wellington Zoo School Holiday Programme. Anyone over the age of 12 will be required to wear a mask inside zoo buildings and please keep your child at home if they are unwell or someone in their home is isolating.
We may make further changes if necessary in the future to align with government advice.
Keeping your kids entertained during the school holidays might sometimes feel like wrangling wild animals, so why not let the professionals take over?
Every school holidays we run a school holiday programme for kids from 5 to 12. They’ll get to meet our animals, learn from our specially trained Zoo staff and get sneak peeks behind the scenes.
Every day of the Zoo Holiday programme is filled with a new action-packed theme, so you can book for one day, or choose a few days that suit.
The kids will have an unforgettable school holiday experience, and be inspired about animals and conservation, all while having fun getting stuck into exciting activities.
