Junior Zoo Keeper for a Day

Experience a day in the life of a Zoo Keeper these school holidays!

A fun-filled day offering children a chance to get involved and behind the scenes at Billabong Zoo.

Assigned to one of our qualified Zoo Keepers, who will guide them through food preparation and specific diets of the animals and create enrichments to teach animals how to forage for food. Learn to care and protect for our amazing animlas, whilst being able to get up close and personal to many of the species we have here at the zoo.

A hands-on experience for children who have a love for animals and to experience the real world of zoo keeping.
