Wildlife Xposure - Vulnerable and Endangered Species

Native Animals

The Wildlife Xposure Team is back for the holidays!

A unique opportunity for children over 3 years old to encounter a selection of Australian species listed as vulnerable, threatened, endangered and critically endangered. Participants will be given the privilege to see, touch, and hold rare and endangered species as they learn about conservation efforts and how we can help conserve and protect their future.

Topics explored include:

  • Natural Disasters
  • Climate Change
  • Human impacts
  • Competition and displacement by introduced species
  • Disease

There will be opportunities for your child to handle some of the animals and get up close for photographs.

This session goes for an hour and is targeted at school age children and may not be suited to younger children whose attention span is shorter. Please take this into consideration prior to booking.  

Bookings are essential and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Adults are not required to purchase a ticket.

Choose from 2 sessions on the day or put your name on the waiting list if we are sold out.

Appropriate for:

  • 3 to 12 year olds with an interest in animals and nature

What you will learn:

  • The children will learn about Australian animals in a fun, interactive environment

 What to wear:

  • This is an indoor event but please wear closed shoes, sunscreen and a hat for visiting the farm after the fun
Parking Info:

Please allow time to find a carpark and walk to the Mummery Room.

While there is some parking available at the front of Edendale we would encourage you to investigate some more sustainable transport options including:

  • Riding your bike
  • Public Transport 
  • Walking
  • Car pooling

Some overflow parking may be available at Eltham North Adventure Playground.

Please note Cafe Eden will be closed for some of the school holidays (December 24 to January 21) but will be open from Monday January 22 onwards serving great coffee and light refreshments. We will have a coffee cart on site from January 2 - January 21. Self-catering and picnics are welcome every day at Edendale.
