  • Bookings are non-refundable but the date can be changed up to 72 hours prior to arrival.
  • Balloons are not permitted into the zoo for the safety of the animals.
  • Sydney Zoo promotes sustainable practices and recommends avoiding disposable single use plastic. Our serving trays and cutlery are recyclable and compostable for lower impact to the environment.
  • Sydney Zoo is open in wet weather conditions, in fact some animals enjoy the wet weather, so your event can go ahead in most weather conditions. If it is wetter than usual, we can reserve a space undercover at our Boulevard Restaurant.
  • It is important to note that while everything possible is done to provide a safe environment for parties, all responsibility falls with the parent/carer of the children.
  • On arrival, head to the Group check-in desk at the zoo entrance. We recommend all arriving together for fast entry.
