Yes. Education bookings include complimentary hire of the Yellowbox Hut. Just let us know upon enquiry that you would like to include this in your booking.
Unfortunately we cannot allow students to have free play or explore the sanctuary without the supervision of our staff.
If you would like your students to have free play during their lunch, we recommend that you take them to Bundoora Park. Bundoora Park is within walking distance and is equipped with multiple playgrounds and shelters.
In this circumstance we recommend that you plan on having at least a half hour snack break prior to your experience. This will allow for a little wiggle room so that you can still start your activities on time.
