Half price entry for families
MONEY woes should not stop anyone from enjoying impressive sights and sounds at Western Sydney Zoo.
The popular zoo in Blacktown City’s tourist hub where glamourous pop music superstar Taylor Swift secretly last month with her Super Bowl champ boyfriend Travis Kelce has just unveiled its GLOW Festival.
This autumn after-dark festival is an impressive display of never-before-seen lightings that Sydney’s top creatives and techies have put together for the delight of the zoo’s tens of thousands of followers.
The zoo management believes they can’t let zoo’s loyal fans down, particularly those reeling from the high cost of everything – such as rent, mortgage, basic groceries, and electricity.
A statement was released by the Sydney Zoo management, promising a half-price entry to the festival “to address the financial challenges facing many families, making it an affordable night for all.”
It means a typical family of four can go out for a night of entertainment at Sydney Zoo for half the cost of usual entry fee, or under $70 in total, so if they have spare $100, a family still have leftover change to spend on food and drinks.
Adults’ entry now costs $19.99, kids up to 16 years old at $14.99 and children from two years old and under are free, and as a bonus, every ticket holder is entitled to free parking at the zoo.
“Recognising the demand for a local alternative to city-based light shows, Sydney Zoo saw an opportunity with GLOW to cater to the needs of residents in the west,” creative director Chris Rivett said. 
“Since its debut in 2022, GLOW has drawn crowds of over 100,000 annually, solidifying its position as a cornerstone event in the city’s calendar.
“We’ve reimagined and expanded GLOW this year, creating an extraordinary experience for guests of all ages.
“With the addition of never-before-seen installations, this year’s GLOW promises to be truly unforgettable.”
Sydney Zoo is home to hundreds of the world’s reptile and native Australian animals frolicking on a 41-acre ground created as their natural habitat.
GLOW Festival will be held over 23 nights from May 10 to June 1 this year. To get your pre-sale tickets at half the price, visit https://sydneyzoo.com/glow/
