An encounter is a very special one on one experience with the animal of your choosing.
Learn all about this animal and get up close enough to touch and to experience the wonder of our amazing and unique native wildlife.
Prices are per Encounter, whether one person or two.
Additional person $10 each. (Dingo, Koala and Wombat Encounters, additional person $20 each)
Koala Encounters limited to 6 people.
Minimum age restrictions apply for dingo and snake; Dingo – 18yrs+ Snake – 16yrs+
Please be aware that if having a Snake Encounter, you cannot have a Lizard Encounter on the same day (and vice versa).
Potoroo Palace may place separate booking party’s together in one Encounter if there is a high demand for specific animals but will never exceed the ‘number of people’ restrictions. Prices charged for participants will be as per separate bookings.
** Encounters with 2 stars are only in afternoons and must be booked by 2pm.
All Encounters strictly at discretion of Zookeepers, depending on availability and/or the animal’s behaviour.
Please note that for various reasons not all of our animals are available for Encounters every day. It is best to simply enquire on your visiting day to avoid disappointment.
