Be a 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 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 - 3.30pm, 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 and a Certificate of Completion at the conclusion of the day.
