Meet some of these beautiful animals up close and go behind-the-scenes at Australia Zoo to see the real side of zoo keeping. The Zoo Keeper for a Day program offers action-packed adventure every school holidays with a variety of programs on offer. We’ve even extended our programs so our interstate zoo keepers have the chance to be a part of the fun and excitement too!
Every season is different and so are our Zoo Keeper for a Day programs, so we’ll change the animals and activities each school holiday period to keep it exciting! You could be lucky enough to help out with the rhino, giraffe or binturong – and you’ll be guaranteed to meet some Zoo Keeper for a Day favourites including Igloo and Goliath, the friendly Aldabran land tortoises!
After a busy morning getting up close with wildlife, budding zoo keepers can enjoy a specially provided lunch while they watch the jaw snapping action of the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors show in the world-famous Crocoseum.
With so many exciting and interactive programs to choose from, including custom programs for the whole family, children of all ages can join in the fun of being a Zoo Keeper for a Day.
