Get up close and personal with a cheetah at Canberra's National Zoo and Aquarium. Enter the enclosure with an experienced zoo keeper and enjoy the rare opportunity to pat and play with one of these amazing creatures. This experience also includes full day entry to explore the wonders of the park.
Ever dreamt you might be able to handle some of the world's most amazing wildlife? Cheetahs are the fastest land animal in the world, running up to 110km an hour, and in the wild they are found only in Africa. Canberra's National Zoo and Aquarium offers one of the most amazing animal experiences in Australia - the opportunity to have hands-on contact with one of these majestic big cats. During your cheetah encounter, you will be in the same enclosure as an unrestrained fully grown adult cheetah. An experienced zookeeper will be with you to answer your questions and guide you as you pat and play with this incredible animal. Spend the rest of the day exploring the park, coming face to face with native Aussie icons and exotic creatures. There's also a cafe, bistro, several picnic areas and complimentary BBQ facilities for your convenience.
Up to two people per encounter.
Encounters run in all weather, excluding electrical storms or high winds.
Casual wear and closed toe shoes recommended.
National Zoo and Aquarium is located five minutes from Canberra CBD.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
