There are 40 plus Koalas to care for in this section. As well as cutting leaf, cleaning and maintenance this team is responsible for Koala photos, animal and keeper handling, training and education in our amazing walk through koala exhibit.

We have some of the world's best horticulturists working right here at Australia Zoo, providing our healthy Koalas with their nutritious diet. Our leafcutters are very dedicated to cutting only the very best eucalyptus leaf tip to feed our koalas.

The Departments

With thousands of visitors from all over the world passing through the gates daily, all team members understand the importance of making a lasting impression to our patrons. A job at Australia Zoo is more than a vocation, it's a lifestyle - just ask any of our team members. Australia Zoo employees love animals and conservation, have an exceptional self-drive attitude towards work and of course, wear the world famous khaki uniforms with pride! You just have to walk around the Zoo to feel the electricity in the air. The atmosphere creates an exciting experience for all visitors and a dream workplace environment for all employees.

All of our staff are legends... but we aim to recognize those who excel and push the boundaries:
