Zoo Vets & Vet Nurse

It's a big job looking after over 1200 animals!

Our zoo vets and vet nurse are responsible for ensuring the health and wellbeing of all the zoo's animals - a typical day could include everything from vaccinating a cheetah, wombat dental checks, snake and bird faecal examinations, and even performing an ultrasound on rhinos and giraffes!

Every animal undergoes an annual health check, as well as regular vaccinations and microchipping. What an awesome job!

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:
