Participate in our Easter family activities
Over and above the Easter Egg Hunt and Twitter competition, the NZG will host family activities throughout the long weekend. These include an Egg & Spoon Race, a Bunny-Hop Sack Race, talks about animals at the zoo, meeting the Easter Bunny, as well as face painting and a colouring corner for the kids.
The Easter programme forms part of a string of family attractions developed by the National Zoo for its visitors. According to Craig Allenby, NZG Commercial Services and Business Development Manager, the sustained rise in the popularity of urban tourism has seen visitor numbers soar.
"The zoo has become a family urban leisure destination attracting interest from across the province, and beyond," he says.
