Calling all aspiring zookeepers!
We’ve got some exciting news for 7-12 year olds! Our Little Kids 2 Keeper program is guaranteed to entertain and educate kids who are itching to experience a ‘behind the scenes look at a day in the life of a zoo keeper. This fully escorted workshop offers exclusive behind the scenes access that enables kids to explore the wonders of wildlife. Kids will meet a keeper and gain an insight into how they spend their day, learn interesting and fun aspects of zoo keeping such as studying animal behaviour, enter an animal’s enclosure, learn how to handle an animal and visit our “off display” reptile room.
Activities in the Little Kids 2 Keeper program:
- Bush walk
- Meet Koalas
- Exclusive spider milking show
- Meet Hugo in his enclosure
- Devil Enrichment
- Turtle feeding – warmer months only
- Reptile Handling – snakes, lizards and tortoises

The workshops run on the first Saturday every month and throughout the school holidays from 12pm – 4pm on selected days and costs $80 per child (Online booking fees apply), which includes park entry, sandwich and drink.
Gift cards are available.
