Holiday Program – Keeper For A Day


We offer a limited number of "KEEPER FOR A DAY" experiences throughout the term and school holidays.
If you’re aged between 12 and 18 you can spend a day behind the scenes with one of our senior keepers during these school holidays.
In the day you can:
• Find out what a day in the life of a sanctuary keeper is like through interactive hands on experiences
• Learn about the conservation of our local wildlife.
• Undertake animal husbandry practises
• Observe our wildlife and their natural behaviours
• Create / provide enrichment for our wildlife residents, by making safe treats and toys that encourage play and stimulate their natural behaviours
You will also get to go on a sanctuary tour with a designated keeper, meeting all the wildlife residents, watch our interactive keeper talks: Reptiles talk, Free flight bird presentation and kangaroo and emu feed and have a private Snake and lizard encounter.

This one-day workshop is suitable for young people between 12 and 18 years of age (participants need to be independently physically capable).

12 – 18 years
9am to 3.30pm (register 8.30am)
10 per workshop

Includes a light morning tea, lunch, and an ice cream.

If your child needs additional snacks throughout the day they are welcome to bring a lunchbox.

Please pack your swimmers and a towel as on hot days the keeper program sometimes concludes in our water splash park
