Outing Saturday 26th May – Taronga Zoo

This outing kicks off our annual Photo Rally. The theme this year is “Animals and Birds” and it runs until the end of June.
We’ll meet at the top entrance to the Zoo at 9:00am. Alternatively, car pool from Gordon Station car park at 8:15am.
If we get a group of 12 or more (which we will), the cost will be $26.45pp for seniors and $36.80 for non-concessions.
All day parking in the zoo parking station is $18.00.

There’s such a lot to do at the zoo these days. Look for the new Tiger Trek experience, the Bird and Seal shows and the new Elephant Stilt House. Check out the zoo website and plan those award-winning shots. Do some research on zoo photography techniques. It’s good to know how to shoot through glass and wire fences and grills. Flash is not permitted so prepare for a few low light scenarios as well.

Bring your own lunch or purchase something at the Food Market. We’ll advise the time and exact spot when we get closer to the event.

Add your name to sign-on sheet and indicate if you will be car-pooling at Gordon or going straight there.

Contact is Judith Bennett via the club email ncp@ncp.org.au
