Get up close and personal with some of the region’s most-loved animals during the Milbi Festival’s unique experience, Breakfast at the Zoo.
During the annual Milbi Festival, friends and families will have the opportunity to take part in the exclusive early entry and guided tour at Breakfast at the Zoo.
Council’s Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the limited ticket tours would be held every half hour throughout Breakfast at the Zoo, and registration prior to the event was necessary.
“Community members will enjoy free entertainment and a barbecue brekky at Breakfast at the Zoo,” he said.
“For those who have registered in advance they will have the special chance to embark on an exclusive guided tour with our passionate zookeepers to learn more about the wonderful animals at our amazing zoo.
“Including information about two species of freshwater turtle, the kreft turtle and the white throated snapping turtle, both are species found in the Burnett River.
“These registered tours are free, with donations welcome to help support local freshwater turtle conservation projects.”
Cr Learmonth said for those who didn’t wish to take part in one of the four registered tours, there would still be plenty of free entertainment and a barbecue breakfast to enjoy before the zoo gates opened to the general public.
“The zoo will then be open as normal from 9.30 am, so those that don’t make the registered tours, will still be able to meet the zoo team and the animals throughout normal opening hours,” he said.
