Roving Entertainment

Smoking wallabies! The fun never stops at Australia Zoo. The roving entertainment crew contributes to the excitement of all patrons at Australia Zoo through hilarious skits and surprising characters.

On promotional days Australia Zoo has extra entertainment and the department plays a key role in excellent customer service and promotion of the Australia Zoo motto - Conservation Through Exciting Education.

It has been noted that ALL patrons visiting the zoo will in some way be an audience for our Entertainment crew. During your visit you could find these larrikins greeting customers dressed as one of our many costume characters... These characters make an impression on all patrons and aim to provide comical stints for the enjoyment of all.

This amazing team also rove our animals around the Zoo including cuddly Koalas, waddling Wombats, terrific Tasmanian Devils, pretty Possums, dynamic Dingoes, brilliant Blue Tongues and Shingleback Skinks, baby American Alligators and crazy Cockatoos!

Not only will you see them up close and personal, you even get the chance to take it one step further and have your photo taken while you pat any one of our amazing critters!

Be sure to look out for them on your next visit to Australia Zoo. We hope to see you soon!
