Conservation Shows

Crikey! Get up close and personal to our amazing animals and experience all the wildlife action at our daily conservation shows.

We are thrilled to welcome visitors back to experience our wildlife and award winning gardens. As we adapt and change to cater for all necessary protocols, our show schedule will change.  Our team will provide a schedule for the day upon your arrival.

Tortoises LIVE!

 

Join one of our zoo keepers to kick off your day at Australia Zoo, by watching our special tortoise demonstration! Gather around Jarvis and Igloo’s lawn to watch these gentle giants get fed their favourite food – fruit and veggies. You’ll learn a lot from our presenting zoo keeper, including from where Aldabra tortoises originate, how much they eat and much more about the species.

Parrots LIVE!

 

Check out our new conservation show with the cheekiest characters of Australia Zoo…our Australian native parrots and South American macaws.  Watch us free fly these birds and we will answer commonly asked questions about these comedians of the sky and how we care for them at the Zoo.

Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Show

 

Are you ready for some serious wildlife action? Our keepers and their amazing animals will take you on a slithering, swooping, jaw-snapping adventure of epic proportions!

Every day in the Mount Franklin Crocoseum we are taking on the world’s conservation issues and protecting the animal kingdom, and we want you to join our army of Wildlife Warriors!

Come on a journey of discovery and learn all about the incredible world of giant snakes, colourful, soaring birds and Steve Irwin’s favourite animal in the entire world – the impressive saltwater crocodile. Woo-hoo!

Koalas LIVE!

 

Do you know why koalas sleep up to 20 hours a day? Did you know they’re not actually bears? Come and admire our best-known Aussie icon and learn all about the amazing habits of this unique and adorable species, including how you can help them in the wild!

Birds Of Prey LIVE!

 

Birds of prey are an impressive sight to see and at Australia Zoo you can marvel at a wedge-tailed eagle, powerful brahminy kite, barking owl or blue-winged kookaburra in all their glory. It’s a great opportunity to admire these beautiful birds up close, learn from our passionate keepers and appreciate how spectacular these animals really are. Australian birds of prey have amazing ways of finding, capturing and eating their prey – come and learn all about it!

Other Talks and Activities

Our usual Keeper Talks will not be set to structured times to limit gatherings and encourage social distancing. Please look for our keepers at different animal enclosures throughout the day for a chat – we love sharing our wildlife!
