Behind the Scenes Experience – Proudly Sponsored by AGL

Keeper Kids is a fun hands-on interactive experience that the whole family can enjoy.

This unique experience is designed for a small group of kids between the ages of 4-10 and a parent to learn how to be a stellar ‘zoo’ keeper at home for their pets, whilst also learning how to create a safe haven for native wildlife in their own backyards.

Venture behind the scenes to meet some of our most adorable Children’s Zoo residents. Learn tips and tricks for how to care for your pets at home from our zoo keepers; how to create healthy meals for your pets, keep them healthy and clean, transport them safely, and much more. Families will also learn how to make their gardens safe and welcoming for native animals and care for injured wildlife.

Participants will receive a special booklet to record their learning, which they can take home as a souvenir. Please note that all animal experiences require enclosed footwear.
