Sleep-over at the Mansfield Zoo
Mansfield Zoo now offers the unique opportunity for the adventurer
in you to stay overnight in at one of our many locations
within the Zoo grounds. The warmer weather make the experience lots
of fun, and will provide an even more memorable animal experience as
you fall asleep to the sounds of the lions, dingos, and other night
Bring along your camping gear and set yourself up for a great night
out. Numbers are limited to keep the experience personal, so book
ahead to make sure you get the date you want. We also know that life
sometimes gets in the way of great plans, and we are also happy to
change dates up to the day before if needed.
We have limited swags available for people who don't have their own
gear - bookings are essential.
'Sleep-overs' are available all year round and are most
popular in the warmer months. Numbers are strictly limited to
a maximum of 25
people, so be sure to book early if you have a larger group.
Two days of entry to the Zoo is included and you are free to roam the grounds on
both the day of arrival and the day of departure, as well as to
exploring the local area.
You will need to
bring along a bbq dinner for your group, and breakfast of your
choice. Most people like to have pancakes on the bbq for
brekky! if you prefer to eat out, make a booking at one of the many
nearby hotels and restaurants.
Costs are $65.00 per adult and $45.00 per child. Note that children
need to be 8 years or older to participate, or have previous camping
