With winter behind us, Adelaide and Monarto Zoos are inviting visitors to celebrate the changing seasons during the spring school holidays.
Visitors will explore the beautiful surroundings of both zoos and learn handy hints on how to transform their gardens at home to attract more native birds and animals as well as participate in fun nature-themed activities each day.
One lucky visitor will take home a gardening voucher package valued at $900 thanks to the teams at Golden Grove, Peats Soil, Garden Supplies and Neutrog. Through completing a special activity trail, children will also go in the draw to win their very own gardening package, perfect for little budding green thumbs!
Learn more about some of the unique and heritage plant life at Adelaide Zoo on the free walkabout tours and take a self-guided walk along the many walking tracks at Monarto Zoo to see some of the hidden gems that are a part of the zoo landscape.
Adelaide Zoo Acting Senior Panda Keeper, Lucy Catt says that spring is a great time to get out and visit the zoo.
"With the beautiful weather forecasted for spring, what better time to get out of the house, and come to the zoo! With the warmer weather and longer days, many of the zoo animals become very active and are great to watch," Lucy said.
Special keeper presentations will focus on how the spring weather awakens our animals and extra 'Meet the Keeper' sessions will allow visitors to interaction with those responsible for caring for the animals and provide an opportunity to ask questions.
So come out of hibernation these spring holidays and explore the green surrounds of our beautiful zoos!
