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.
Find out what working in a wildlife sanctuary is all about with some exclusive firsthand experiences
Learn about the conservation of our local wildlife, animal husbandry practises, create and provide enrichment for our animals.
This one-day workshop is suitable for young people between 12 and 18 years of age (participants need to be independently physically capable).
"My son said it was really fantastic! Even better than he had hoped. He did the Australia Zoo keeper program a while ago and said that he enjoyed this one much more. He thought your program was more interesting and a lot more interactive than the Australia Zoo program.
He said he really liked the educator Erin and that all the other staff were lovely. The Guinea Pigs were his favourite. Cleaning the kangaroo enclosure was his least favourite but still good fun. He has always wanted to work with animals but now even more so. I know what he will be doing every school holidays from now."
Includes morning tea, lunch, and an ice cream.
If your child needs additional snack 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.
