Does your child -

Love animals? Want to know more about being a zookeeper? Want to help care for the animals at the zoo?

Then the Junior Zookeeper Club Primary (School Years 3 to 6) and High School (Years 7-10) is for them!

These programs are designed for those keenly interested in animals and learning how zoos operate. Its also a great stepping stone for kids wanting to pursue an animal related profession.

Sessions occur almost every month on a weekend for 3 hours either in the morning - 9am to 12pm OR in the afternoon - 1pm to 4pm.


The cost for NEW members is $435.00.
