Zookeeper for a Day – Junior School Holiday Programs

School Holiday Programs

Zookeeper for a Day


Reptile Encounters is home to over 500 Native Australian Animals. Our amazing wildlife inspires children and adults alike to take an interest in the natural world. The majority of species we have here in Australia are found nowhere else on Earth.

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.

Based at Reptile Encounters HQ in Burwood, your child will be enthralled by our native Australian wildlife, will learn about conservation, and will have the time of their lives interacting with our critters.

They will be treated to one of our highly engaging and educational wildlife shows, they will observe some of our most impressive animals, such as crocodiles and monitor lizards, being fed, before it is time for them to try their hand at feeding some of the smaller animals. The day will have various workshops on animals ranging from giant cockroaches to barking owls, and is sure to be a day that your little keeper will never forget.
