As cases of COVID-19 keep rising, nations around the world have imposed restrictions on travel. This has led to many travellers wondering when their next travel adventure would be, but a unique new campaign by New South Wales Tourism could give you a different experience.

The Australian Reptile Park is now inviting people to connect virutually with its wildlife. This means that you can now sit at home, and enjoy the wondrous wildlife of the Central Coast of New South Wales. While the Reptile Park closed down on March 25, 2020, the animals are still being taken care of by workers.

Children will be able to access educational videos made by the park as a lot of them are now getting home-schooled. Tim Faulkner will be hosting these videos and they will be titled, Animal Tales with Tim Faulkner.

Enjoy virtual tours of Australian Reptile Park while in self-isolation

Moreover, the Australian Reptile Park will be live-streaming programmes conducted by zookeepers. In these daily shows, the zookeepers would be showing their favourite animals, and even answering your questions. You can catch a lot of live action, which involves playtime and cuddles with dingoes; feeding koalas; feeding saltwater crocodile, Elvis; and much more. Your self-isolating experience just got a whole lot more interesting with the virtual tours.

According to a statement by Tim Faulkner, “With so many people at home due to the current health situation happening around the world, we wanted to ensure we created a way that they could keep in touch with nature.”

You can catch the programme Rainbow Lorikeets and other backyard birds on April 2, 2020 at 10 am; and you can catch the programme Mad about Monotremes: meet the echidna on April 3, 2020 at 10 am. You can also catch Live streams on various social media platforms.
