Sydney’s Hands-On Wildlife Experience


Be a Featherdale Zookeeper for a Day!


Do you know a little animal lover who dreams of being a zookeeper one day?

Bring them along to Featherdale Wildlife Park’s new Zookeeper for a Day program these school holidays to make their dreams come true!


Our little keepers will be accompanied by our keepers and education officer for a range of activities around the park from 9.00am - 3.00pm, making friends with a variety of animals, learning about their specific diets, our enrichment programs to educate and engage our animals and most importantly, the important projects Featherdale is involved with across a variety of key species.


The Zookeeper for a Day is fully supervised by qualified education officers and keepers, and morning tea, lunch and bottled water will be provided. Our budding zookeepers will also receive a Zookeeper for a Day shirt, gift bag, souvenir book and free kids entry for their next visit to Featherdale. Each child will receive a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the day.
