Westfield North Lakes transformed an area of the shopping centre into a realistic safari with life-sized animatronic jungle animals, such as lions, apes, and tigers. The animatronic jungle animals at Westfield North Lakes move and roar, just like real animals in the wild.

The safari can be explored at your own leisure or you can join the guided tour that leaves the Centre Court every 20 minutes. This can be a family activity that both the parents and the kids will enjoy. All kids should strictly be under the supervision of parents or guardians.

While waiting, the kids can explore creativity with some free safari craft to fill in the time. Kids can also join the “Colouring In Competition”, a colouring competition that will run until the 1st of October. The kids can pick up a safari themed colouring page in the Australian Geographic store and submit it back on or before the closing date. Five winners will be awarded five $20 gift voucher from Australian Geographic.
