Each week, a new story is told to reflect the changing seasons using puppets, drama, craft, music and dance, with gentle messages about our environment, conservation and local Aboriginal culture. Children will meet loveable characters like Zippy Dragonfly, Harley Motorbike Frog, Warbles Magpie and Yorna Bobtail in a shady, outdoor environment.

Zippy's Kings Park Adventures gives young children a 'bush' experience in the heart of the city. It encourages fun, nature play and imaginative learning in the beautiful surrounds of Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park.

The program is $80 for each eight-week term which includes a 45-minute session each week, plus free time in Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park.

Special bookings are available for Kindergarten groups. Please contact the Kings Park Education Bookings Office for more information.

Term 1 starts in February so zip to it!
