Spring babies will be centre stage in the daily show line up at Australian Reptile Park in the September/October school holidays, as park keepers present ZooBorns! Guests will also be able to admire the ZooBorns up-close and outside of show times, in a BRAND NEW baby animal nursery, stationed in the natural bush setting of the park.
Continuous live shows punctuate a day out at Australian Reptile Park in the September school holidays with two reptile shows, spider milking, crocodile feeding, dingo walks, Galapagos tortoise feeding, and the re-commencement of alligator feeding following their winter hibernation.
During the ZooBorns Baby Animal Show, visitors will be able to cuddle up to baby Tasmanian devils and have their photo taken with them in the show arena, whilst hearing from keepers on how they’re raised at Australian Reptile Park.
The alligator feeding show takes a different tone with a thrill seeking element, as keepers row their boat onto a lagoon home to 40 American alligators before walking onto a feeding ramp where the alligators snap out of the water to catch their food. These holidays mark the beginning of their feeding season after winter break which means they will be hungry!
Staying true to Australian Reptile Park’s hands-on-zoo experience, roving keepers will also manage daily animal walks and talks in the park with Kraken the Komodo Dragon, Hugo the Galapagos Tortoise and Adina the dingo walked daily.
Guests inspired to learn more about the workings of a hands-on-zoo can book a VIP Behind the Scenes tour or a Kids 2 Keeper program, providing a true insight into zoo operations.
