On arrival at RSPCA Wacol Animal Care Campus, your tour guide will collect you from the front desk in the main adoptions centre building. You will receive an overview and history of RSPCA, followed by the tour to see everything you need to know about how we care for rescued animals.
This is an informative and relaxed tour that will take approximately 1 hour to complete. Your guide will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you move around the campus. Families are welcome but we ask for a minimum age to attend of 7 years.
The tour will cover the adoption areas, the wildlife and domestic animal hospitals, farmyard and other 'behind the scenes' areas of our campus.
The cost of the tour is $6.19 ($5 donation and a $1.19 administration fee to process the booking). Your $5 donation will go directly to the welfare and care of our animals.
While on campus you may want to stop by at our Black Cat Café, shop at World for Pets or find a bargain at our Op Shop, all proceeds go towards the support and care of the animals at RSPCA Queensland.
Information on our full group tours throughout the week is available on our website or can be obtained by contacting the Education Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
