There’s no need to be glum if you’re not jetting off on holiday this Half Term, we’ve got a different kind of passport you can enjoy here at home!

As part of Love Your Zoo Week we’ll take you on an adventure with our new Rumpletump's Discovery Trail.

Grab a copy of the booklet during your visit and learn all about the unique animals here at Hobbledown as you go round collecting stamps at their enclosures. You even get a prize at the end for collecting them all!

Other activities planned for Love Your Zoo Week, which runs from May 28th to June 5th, include:

  • Meet and greet sessions with the farmyard favourites [12pm] and creepy crawlies [3pm]
  • Visit our Raptor Centre, home to an impressive collection of hawks, falcons and owls [open 10am to 5pm]
  • Watch as the birds of prey take to the skies during flying demonstrations [11.30am and 3pm excluding Wednesday, weather permitting]
  • Check out our animal walkthroughs, we have them for the wallabies, lorikeets, goats and giant rabbits
