National Zoo & Aquarium

Something new at the Zoo!

If your child curious about the operation of a zoo? Then try Keeper For A Day.

These ‘stand alone’ three hour sessions allow children to experience life as a zoo keeper. They will be given the opportunity to participate in activities such as cleaning, feeding and making toys for our animals, as well as learning about local and international conservation issues. We aim to include different activities in each session to ensure that no two days at the zoo are exactly the same! You can come to one session or more!

Cost is $75 per session.

Sessions run on selected Saturdays and Sundays for 3 hours in the morning – 9am to 12pm.

Bookings for 2017 sessions are now open.
