Keeper for a Day Adult

Keeper for a Day takes you behind-the-scenes into the daily lives of our keepers and gives you a once in a lifetime opportunity to see a different side to Taronga Zoo.

As a Keeper for a Day, participants may try their hand at tasks such as preparing food and devising enrichment activities, cleaning enclosures and feeding and meeting some of our animals. Each day is different and you never know what you'll end up doing! This program will take you to places not seen by the general public and show you a whole new side to Taronga!

As part of a small group, you will be assigned to one of our experienced senior keepers, who will be your host for the day.

The day includes an “official” Keeper for a Day shirt and morning tea.
