Melbourne Zoo: Elliot Ave - Parkville, Victoria
Sunday October 18: 11:00 am - 4:30 pm
As children’s book authors and illustrators we often find ourselves creating animal characters, and we need to keep our skills nimble. SCBWI Victoria is here to help.
We invite you to join us on Sunday October 18 for a SCBWI day at the Melbourne Zoo. This will be a relaxed, social event filled with drawing and writing. There will be an assortment of species on show (human and otherwise).
We will meet inside the zoo at 11am, opposite the main entrance. We will give you some creative challenges on the day that you can follow or ignore. It is a time for skills development and fun; you can work alone, in pairs or get together with a small group to explore, draw and/or write.
Zoo Entrance Fee: $31.60 (Full) $24.20 (Concession)
You can save on queuing by pre-purchasing your ticket.
