Party Plus

Close Encounter Children Parties!

Why not make this special day an even greater and more memorable experience for your child by paying for a ‘PLUS’ party option. On top of all of the above your party ‘plus’ will also include a special ‘close encounter’ with your choice of one of the following animals:


All party children will get to pat a koala, in a special area where the koala is down low at eye level.


One of the dingoes will be brought out on a lead for the children to pat and cuddle.


One of our snakes will be wrapped around the birthday child and all party children will get to pat and touch the snake. (NOTE: can only occur when the reptile Keeper is working, so ensure you book early).


A booking and 20% non-refundable deposit must be paid at least 7 days before the party date. Final numbers must be confirmed at least 3 days before the party date and that is the minimum cost that you will be charged for, regardless of how many children actually attend on the day. The balance of payment must be received on the day, before the party begins and food is served. Parents and guardians are expected to supervise the children at all times in all areas including the animal park, shop area and Mini-Golf area.

Please be considerate of other paying guests that may also be in the animal park and Mini-Golf areas.

There is no minimum number of children required to book a party.

To book your party please ask our staff for a ‘Party Booking Form’ and complete and return it to Maru with deposit payment at least seven days before the planned party date.

Please feel free to contact the staff at Maru for any further information or special requests.
