Keeper for a Day

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

Then they can't miss the opportunity to become a zookeeper these school holidays! Our zookeeper for a day program is an experience they'll never forget, full of enriching experiences and learning.  To make sure your child gets plenty of 1:1 attention, our groups are limited to a maximum of 10 participants per group and usually sell out quickly in the approach to school holidays.

Little keepers will be accompanied by our Hunter Valley Wildlife Park zookeepers and an education officer for a range of activities around the park, giving them a chance to learn, make new friends, and enjoy interacting with a variety of animals.

The Zookeeper for a Day Program is fully supervised by Qualified zookeepers or staff and morning tea, lunch and drinks will be provided.

Booking is essential and spots will fill up quickly.

Zookeeper for a day participants will really feel the part with these great perks included with every ticket:
