Curious Creatures, Wild Minds at Taronga Zoo

Leave the ordinary behind and become Curious and Wild this Spring! The CBCA NSW is celebrating this Spring at Taronga Zoo Sydney, thanks to a grant gratefully received from Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund.

We’re busy working with the supportive Education Unit at Taronga to form a program of visits from creators of books for kids across six weeks in the lead up to our Kids Book of the Year Announcement and the launch of CBCA Book Week at the zoo. Our program will run from September 4 through to the end of Book Week on October 23.


We are working hard, utilising all our positive, curious and wild powers to create live events at the zoo, we have everything crossed— so stay close and we will keep you up-to-date throughout August with invitations to come along.


Regardless of the challenges circling our community, we’re inviting six of our creatives, writers and illustrators, to channel all their ‘Dr Dolittle’ skills and chat with some lucky curious creatures at the Zoo alongside their wild carers. We will be recording these and making them available to all! Here on this page. Our goal is to celebrate curious thinking and wild imaginings and the role they play in reading and writing.


We sincerely hope all our stories coming to you throughout this program will inspire you to create your own wild events this Spring. We know curiosity and wild creative thinking are at the heart of all good stories…
