We’re a registered conservation and education charity and therefore we have to carefully monitor the number of free entry tickets that are issued to other organisations for fundraising events that do not directly benefit the zoo or our charitable mission.

As a major visitor attraction situated in one of the city’s suburbs we also want to support our local community.

In order to manage the process of donating free tickets to other organisations the following criteria has been put in place:

  • Tickets will be issued to either organisations or other registered charities whose work clearly supports or relates to our own mission: ‘preventing extinction’ or to schools and registered community groups in the local area
  • We will only donate tickets directly to organisations and charities rather than third parties, i.e. not to those holding events on behalf of other nominated charities or causes
  • Only one set of tickets will be allocated to successful organisations in any 12 month period

All applications will be considered using the above criteria and successful applicants will be notified by post.

Please send applications with a stamped, addressed envelope to:
