2022 Kids Xmas Party banner - Sydney - event details

It's time to spread festive joy to kids who are sick, experiencing disadvantage or living with a disability.

For thousands of kids, their families and carers; the annual Variety Kids Xmas Party in Sydney is a chance to experience the magic of the festive season. This December the Variety Kids Xmas Party will be held at Sydney Zoo!

There is something special about Sydney Zoo and even more so when you get to experience it in the evening. Join us for an exclusive evening of animals, experiences and festive fun. Plus, on the way-out families will be gifted with a present to take home.

Sydney Zoo is home to over 4,000 animals, 5 iconic precincts, an aquarium and the largest Reptile and Nocturnal house in the Southern Hemisphere. The zoo was designed to be inclusive for all guests. Accessible by wheelchair, mobility scooter and pram and is relatively flat with wide pathways, making visiting easy. In fact, there are no stairs in the entire Zoo! 

For children with sensory issues, we anticipate low noise levels on the day as we are able to keep crowds limited. The zoo is also large enough to find a quiet spot to sit.

Please note we only have a limited number of spots for this event so it is first in, best dressed. We strongly encourage you to register for this event as soon as possible. 


As you may already know we are holding the Variety Kids Xmas Party in Newcastle. We ask if you have registered for the Newcastle event that you don't register for Sydney, due to limited capacity families can only register for one event

This is a COVID Safe event and is in compliance with relevant NSW public health orders. We strongly advise not to attend if you are feeling unwell.
