Discovery Day: Behind the Scenes at Melbourne Zoo and Royal Park (BOOKED OUT)
March 25, 2017
**PLEASE NOTE: This event is now BOOKED OUT.***
Go behind the scenes of Melbourne Zoo’s Butterfly House and into the Nursery. See how the invertebrate keepers rear the many species of larvae that metamorphose into beautiful butterflies for one of the Zoo’s most popular exhibits. We are fortunate enough to have been given access to go behind the scenes of the butterfly house, and the nursery that grows food for the larvae. Whilst in the precinct we hope to be able to take a walk through the very extensive Royal Park. The remnant grassy woodlands of Royal Park and the beautiful new children’s garden on the Old Royal Children’s Hospital site are on the must-see list!
Wear your walking shoes and be prepared to see a part of our beautiful city that you may have only driven past!
