Back by popular demand: Aussie Ark opens its doors these school holidays

For the third year in a row, Aussie Ark is welcoming the general public to walk through its doors during the summer school holidays.

Following the great success of the previous open days, Aussie Ark, located in Barrington Tops, is thrilled to greet its supporters once again and share its passion for wildlife conservation.

From January 1 to February 2, 2021, visitors will have the opportunity to meet some of Australia's most endangered species. Opening hours are from 10am - 2pm every single day with tours of the facility running at 10.30am, 11.30am and 12.30pm.

"Open days are the perfect opportunity for our supporters to experience the conservation work that our team is doing every single day. I believe it is so important to show our supporters exactly what it is we do at Aussie Ark," president, Tim Faulkner said.

While the conservation facility already runs small private tours each month, Aussie Ark hopes that by opening its doors for the school holidays, its team can encourage more people to join their conservation crusade.

"Open days constitute a lot of work but it is so worth it. It is precious for our staff to be part of people's journey to connect or reconnect with nature," Tim explained.

Tours guarantee that visitors will see and encounter Tasmanian devils in their wild enclosures and get up close to Eastern quolls. Encounters with joey animals are available and are perfect for all ages.

Ticket prices are $35 per adult, $15 per child and $90 for a family to visit Aussie Ark during the school holidays. Tickets will be available at the door or online via Eventbrite
