Virtual School Incursions Sydney

Whether your students are learning in lockdown, rural areas or unable to leave the classroom, virtual excursions provide an interactive and engaging way to learn from home.

Two iconic Australian attractions have launched their innovative, new ‘Wild at Home Tours’, a series of live and private virtual tours which bring WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo and SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, straight to your students.

From the comfort of home, teachers can choose for their students to meet the best of Australia’s wildlife at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo or take them on an exploration of the majestic, underwater wonders at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium.

With three tour options available, the Wild at Home Tours offer something for every student and teacher! From hanging out with Koalas and reptiles to getting up close with sawfish and Pig the Dugong, each tour provides an interactive and informative virtual experience.

Each educational Wild at Home Tour is guided by your very own knowledgeable WILD LIFE Keepers or SEA LIFE Aquarists. The 45-minute virtual tours take you on a journey to meet animals of all shapes and sizes, learn from animal experts and ask all of your burning questions, such as ‘why are a wombat’s poo shaped like cubes?’

Each Wild at Home Tour is sold separately and allows for up to 100 students to join each tour, although it’s recommended for group 50 or fewer students to allow everyone the chance to ask their questions and engage with the keepers during the tour.

Wild at Home Tours are perfect for:

  • Schools looking for interesting and educational ways to keep their students engaged in online learning
  • Families looking for child-friendly, engaging and educational online entertainment
  • Camp coordinators faced with the challenge of providing a COVID safe experience or an at-home virtual school camp
