Meet a cheetah in a memorable encounter
Canberra’s National Zoo & Aquarium offers one of the most amazing animal experiences in Australia – the opportunity to have hands-on contact, pat and play with one of these amazing cats.
During your Meet-A-Cheetah experience, you will be in the same enclosure as the unrestrained cheetahs. At all times an experienced Zoo Keeper will be with you to answer your questions and guide you as you interact with these incredible animals. A maximum of 2 people go into the cheetah enclosure with the Keeper per session, and sessions last for approximately 10 minutes.
Weekends are our most popular days for these encounters and we are often booked out weeks in advance – so if you can’t find a place on a weekend, try a weekday.
“The cheetah is the world’s fastest land animal. They can run up to 110km an hour!”
