If a morning spent dining with dingoes or munching with monkeys sounds good, then don’t miss your chance to secure tickets for the Zoo breakfast series.
Held on 1, 8 and 15 November, a very limited number of tickets are available for the Alexandra Park Zoo breakfast series which sees you enjoy a continental-style breakfast with before-hours access to the facility.
Zookeepers will be on hand to introduce a variety of animals and present informative anecdotes about the creatures in their care.
Bundaberg Regional Council Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the breakfast event was not to be missed.
“This is a must for animal lovers as not only are you enjoying a breakfast feed in the lovely Alexandra Park Zoo, but you can enjoy your breakfast alongside charming wallabies, slithery snakes and adorable cotton-top tamarins,” Cr Learmonth said.
“This behind-the-scenes experience will also include watching the monkeys munch on their own breakfast and snake and dingo encounters.”
Zoo Breakfasts will be held over 3 Sundays in November with tickets going on sale on 14 October.
Animal keepers will give informal talks, and offer participants a chance to see some animals up close.
Alexandra Park Zoo supervisor David Flack said the unique dining experience offers members of the public the opportunity to enjoy the sights and sounds of Alexandra Park Zoo before it opens.
“For many of our more unique species, coming to the zoo early is the best way to get an up-close encounter and learn about our amazing wildlife,” Dave said.
“You’ll find out about animal diets and what, and how, we feed our animals here at the zoo, then, you can enjoy early-bird access to the zoo before we open the gates to our guests for the day.”
“You may even catch some of our animals enjoying their breakfast snacks when they first enter their yards.”
“Not only is our zoo breakfast guaranteed to keep young and old animal lovers entertained, they’ll also go away having learnt a thing or two about native and exotic animals.
The Zoo breakfast will be held on 1,8 and 15 November from 7:30am to 9am and tickets will go on sale from 14 October.
Due to COVID restrictions guests are not permitted to touch the animals but will still have a unique Zoo experience with animal meet and greets.
