Junior Keeper Programme

Do you have a child that loves animals and everything about them? Our Junior Keeper programme will leave them buzzing as they spend a day with our Keepers and animals.

They will learn what it is like to be a zookeeper – cleaning, feeding, monitoring, caring and playing with the animals. They will even get to join the keeper’s area of the crocodile exhibit during the croc show – you can’t get much closer than that!

Junior keeper runs during school holidays or by special appointment, with a minimum of 3 children.

“This review is on behalf of my two kids who did ‘keeper for a day’. 9.00am – 3.30pm, group of 5 kids got to be keeper for a day. Behind the scenes keeper experince the kids rated as amazing & awesome. Up close with the farm animals, Monkeys, Crocodiles & Tarantulas. Got to hand feed the farm animals, hand feed the Monkeys, Parrots etc….. Amazing experience for the kids. They wanna do it again!!!! Recommended. Thank you to the staff who made it a great day.”
