Educational Exerperiences with the Australian Reptile Park

Onsite Excursions 

At the Australian Reptile Park we like to make education fun and interactive. Our show “Living Things In Their Natural Environment” is catered to suit curriculum needs and outcomes whilst providing the highest level of student engagement. Teachers can also opt to choose one of three “add-on” topics to your educational show that correlate with key topics in the Science & Technology Syllabus. They are:

- Lifecycles – with a focus on frogs

- Ecosystems – with a focus on spiders

- Conservation – with a focus on Tasmanian devils

The Australian Reptile Park’s school shows are interactive, educational and structured around key curriculum learnings. Animals we may feature in our school shows include the Koala, Tawny frogmouth, Alligator, Burmese python, a variety of lizards and pythons*. You can also cater it further towards your current unit of work with the added options of either frogs (lifecycles), Tasmanian devils (conservation) or spiders (ecosystems).
