Audio Described Tours

A 2-hour tour of the Zoo using Audio Description to support blind and partially sighted people in getting up close and personal with our amazing animals. Our knowledgeable Presenters will guide a group of 10 to 20 people around the Zoo, with visual awareness assistance where needed, on a route that includes some tactile models of the animals and, when available, an animal experience.

To book onto a tour, and find out more information, please email with:

  • The number of places you would like on the tour,  
  • Whether you will be bringing a guide dog, 
  • Whether you require visual awareness assistance (you are entitled to bring a companion or carer free with a disability concession ticket, so you are welcome to bring your own assistant). 

The tours will start at 10:30am from the Outback exhibit. Please note, the tour is free to book, but you will need a ticket to access the Zoo which can be booked online.
