A day at the Zoo for Variety kids
Variety – the Children’s Charity thanks Melbourne Zoo who hosted over 4,000 kids experiencing disadvantage, disability and illness for a fun-filled day of animal spotting, entertainment and activities.
On arrival at Melbourne Zoo, kids were met with colourful roving characters from Spiderman to Unicorn Fairies as well as a sea of welcoming volunteers.
From there kids can took part in a scavenger hunt, got their groove on with a local DJ, marked the day with a fun temporary tattoo, took a ride on the Variety accessible play equipment or enjoyed some quiet time in the Leopard Lounge with colouring, books and Play Doh.
Special Variety guests include Paralympics Bronze Medallist and previous Variety grant recipient Nick Hum and Variety Life Member and Ambassador Derryn Hinch.
Variety Kids Events Kids bring laughter, joy and inclusion into the lives of kids who may otherwise miss out and Variety Zoo Day is no exception with one group attending commenting that despite living 2km away they have never been able to visit the Zoo due to financial stress.
