Australian Animal Incursion

Discover the amazing animals of Australia in the comfort of your kindergarten! Get face to face with some of Australia’s most fascinating mammals and reptiles in our wildlife works incursion.

In this incursion you will meet many animals that call our zoo home, but here are a few examples, such as Poppie, our Kangaroo Island Kangaroo, Alba, the cutest alpine dingo you have ever met, Rex, the shingleback lizard and Ollie the olive python, Australia’s 2 largest snake!

Our Wildlife Incursions are a great introduction for 3 and 4 year old kindergarten students as we explore the animals, where they live, what they eat, what they feel like, and nurture a connection between the student and our animals. We make our little learners feel safe and encourage them to participate as we introduce them to an array of Aussie animals.

Kindergarten and school incursions with Australian animals

Changing our local landscape,
1 show at a time

For each show booked we have made the pledge to do some good.. For each Wildlife Works incursion booked, we will gift you a small tree, shrub or grass to plant in your yard. We care about our local environment so we are putting our money/trees were our mouth is! Watch the tree blossom and spark conversations about bees and pollinators.

Our goal is to plant 10,000 trees by 2027.

Help us on our journey to re-wild Victoria, one Kindergarten at a time!

A really great program

Excellent interactive learning program for Kindergarten Children. Michael does an amazing job in making it fun and educational to my young group of children.

Extremely good value for money!

I couldn't recommend them more - reliable, friendly, great with children, they provide an excellent array of critters and the show is engaging and fun.
Anthea Kate, Kindergarten Teacher

A terrific way to invest an hour!

Thank you for delivering an informative and fun session at the Point Cook Community Centre today. The session was highly educational, interactive and the python photo with my daughter will deliver a story she can share with her classmates.

Amazing with the children!

We had the rookeepers at a centre. They were amazing with the children, communicated so well and engaged everyone - educators and children. For someone like me who was extremely scared, it was one of my most memorable days at work.
