We have an experience for everyone


Pathways Zookeeper for a Day Program

At Reptile Encounters we believe that inclusion and confidence building are the cornerstones of assisting individuals in finding their calling. We developed our Pathways program at the beginning of 2019, to do just that; assist differently-abled individuals to develop skills that allow them to become more independent and flourish. This program is NDIS approved!

Visiting Headquarters

Our headquarters, conveniently located in Burwood, is home to over 300 animals belonging to over 90 indigenous species. Discover how you can meet them on a Private Tour or an up-close animal experience.

Volunteer with Reptile Encounters

Learn about animal husbandry, be part of a fabulous team, establish life-long friendships and make a difference by volunteering for Reptile Encounters.

Programs for School-aged Kids

During the school holidays, your child can become a Zookeeper for a Day. If they love wildlife and have a passion for the environment, then this experience is for them.
