6 Tips for Visiting the Green Planet

1
Start in the CanopyThe attraction is a bio-dome that is arranged according to the structure of the rainforest. If you start at the top, in the canopy, you can slowly descend the stairs through the midstory to the forest floor and the flooded rainforest level at the bottom. Along the way, you’ll pass several chances to encounter animals of all different species.

2
Don’t Touch the AnimalsIn The Green Planet, the animals have the run of the attraction and aren’t fenced inside cages. That means that you can get really close to some of the birds and monkeys once you enter. However, for your safety and the animals’, you should only touch creatures when instructed to do so by a member of staff.
3
Check the Program Before Your VisitIf there’s a particular animal you’d like to meet, or if you’re interested in feeding times or chatting to the animal keepers about their jobs, then check the website to confirm the times of key activities. Then you can plan your route around the attraction so that you don’t miss anything.
4
Visit - or Avoid - the BatcaveThe Batcave is exactly what it sounds like, a darkened area of the attraction where bats roam freely. If you’re not fond of the dark or you’re afraid of bats, you might want to give this section a miss. However, if you’re interested in a different kind of zoo experience then the Batcave is the perfect exhibit for you.
5
Book Animal Encounters in AdvanceFor the health and wellbeing of the animals, there are only a limited number of encounters available per day. If you’re desperate to meet a particular creature then it’s worth booking in advance to secure your place.
6
Meet the PiranhasEvery day at 4 pm, the piranhas are fed their dinner. The resulting feeding frenzy is fascinating to watch, especially for people who’ve only seen piranhas in cartoons! Experts will also be available to answer any questions that you might have, so it’s well worth going to the piranha aquarium if you’re visiting the attraction at the right time of day.

The Green Planet: An Innovative Zoo Concept

The Green Planet opened its doors in 2016, offering tourists and locals the chance to experience a rainforest. Built around the world’s largest indoor man-made and life-sustaining tree, you can explore four different areas of the tropical forest, from the flooded forest floor to the canopy that houses tropical birds and monkeys. With over 3,000 plants and animals, you can spend hours exploring the different levels and areas. Highlights include the dark and mysterious Batcave and the Australian Walkabout experience.

Are there any educational programs on offer?

In addition to the talks given by experts around the attraction during the day, there are several educational programs available for children.

How long should I plan for my visit?
