Zoo Keeper for a Day

Zoo Keeper for a Day

School’s out and the real fun is just beginning at Australia Zoo!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work as a zoo keeper? If you’d like to know how we prepare the delicious diets for our amazing animals or what types of enrichment we make for them to enjoy and interact with – the Zoo Keeper for a Day program may be one for you!

Meet some of our beautiful animals and experience the real world of zoo keeping.

Every season is different and so are our Zoo Keeper for a Day programs, so animals and activities may vary during the year! You could be lucky enough to help out with the rhino, giraffe or binturong – or meet some Zoo Keeper for a Day favourites like the friendly Aldabra land tortoises!

After a busy morning, budding zoo keepers can enjoy a specially provided lunch to refuel their energy.
