Stay Overnight

Sleep-over at Mansfield Zoo
Mansfield Zoo now offers the unique opportunity for the adventurer in you to stay overnight at one of our many locations within the Zoo grounds. The warmer weather makes the experience lots of fun, and will provide an even more memorable animal experience as you fall asleep to the roar of the lions, howling of the dingos, and other night sounds.

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 always happy to change dates up to the day before if needed.

Bookings are essential. Take the time to do something different and get away from it all with your own personal Zoo experience.

How sleep-overs work:
‘Sleep-overs’ are available from September to May each year. Numbers are strictly limited to a maximum of 25 people, so be sure to book early if you have a large 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 take the opportunity to explore the local area.

This is a camping experience, so 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. Our kiosk is open for soft drinks and ice-creams and mementos of your stay can be purchased at the gift shop.

Costs are $75.00 per adult and $50.00 per child.
Two Adults and two children: $230
