School holidays guide | Winter 2020

There’s always plenty to see and do in Canberra, especially now that restrictions are easing. If you’re planning a staycation these winter school holidays, check out the advertisers in this special guide for interesting places to go and things to do.

The National Zoo and Aquarium

The National Zoo and Aquarium is excited to announce the launch of two new and amazing interactive zoo tours: the Awesome Roarsome tour and the African Savannah Safari!

Both are 90-minute-long adventures that are held early in the day to maximise the chances of the animals being active and gives participants the opportunity to meet and handfeed some of the most amazing animals on earth.

The tours can be booked independently or as a combined three-hour, unforgettable experience.

Or check out the new Wonders Of Wildlife Tour for an all-day adventure.
