Hear a lion roar close by, hand-feed a greedy giraffe or take a walk with a dingo. With a wide variety of native and exotic animals and heady mix of animal encounters, head to Canberra’s National Zoo and Aquarium. Take a break from the heavyweight museum and gallery trail of the capital, at the only country’s only combined zoo and aquarium. Explore the grounds at your own pace and make a beeline for your favourites or plan a visit around the weekend and school holiday Keeper Talks. With bears, lions and tigers and natives like emus, a visit to the Zoo and Aquarium is a sure-fire family favourite.
