Dream Night at Taronga Zoo

Dream Night at the Zoo is art of a event that is held in zoos around the world.  In Sydney, Taronga Zoo's event is planned to coincide with International Day of People With Disability, and gives children with disabilities and chronic illnesses and their families a unique opportunity for a twilight visit to Taronga Park, without the usual crowds of visitors.  Invitations are highly prized: entirely at the Taronga's discretion, and without publicity.

Down Syndrome NSW has been very fortunate to have received a limited number of tickets for members for three years (although last year's event was spectacularly washed out by a late and ferocious summer storm). Eligible families quickly took up the offer of tickets, and had a wonderful time on a fine night last Thursday evening.

Photos are now available to view through our Facebook page, as is feedback from several families - visit our FB wall for additional photos ... you are welcome to post yours there too.
