G’day, mate! Are you ready for the trip of a lifetime as we zoom off to the Land Down Under?

Be prepared to experience the jaw-dropping beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, the arid temperature of outback afternoons, the architectural marvels of Australia’s modern cities, and the fascinating eucalyptus forest, home of the koalas.

At Zoomerang, the newest Answers VBS, you’ll marvel at the unforgettable wildlife, culture, and beauty of Australia while exploring the wonder and value of life, from the lives of preborn babies to eternal life in the kingdom of God.

From the minute your mates step off the plane onto Australian soil, they will find themselves on a trip they’ll never forget!

The day begins at the Aussie Assembly, the thrilling opening complete with entertaining welcomes, “aus-some” songs, a mission moment, and prayer. Then we're off to four fun rotation sites:
