(Currently unavailable due to COVID-19 restrictions, however, Keepers around the zoo are available for impromptu questions about our animals throughout the day. We also have Zoo Keeper Presentation videos available via QR codes at some of our exhibits.)
Billabong Zoo is committed to education. Our experienced and dedicated Zoo Keepers present 16 Keeper Talks covering 10 species, throughout the day, every day. Plus a 20 minute reptile presentation at the weekends and holidays. All free, as they are included in your admission fee. At many of these Zoo Talks we will also take the opportunity to feed our animals. Watch our keepers when they interact with our cheetahs, lions, monkeys and crocodile. In the case of the koalas, dingoes and reptiles, visitors have the opportunity to pat or stroke the animals.
As part of our role as a modern zoo, we take the time to explain the life of an animal in the wild and in a number of cases, explain the role of a zoo in terms of conservation, as a number of the animals we care for are sadly vulnerable or critically endangered in the wild. During these presentations we are happy to take any questions from our visitors. Many of our enclosures have been specifically designed to give protection from the rain or sun to enable the Zoo to provide a great experience, whatever the weather.
