Healesville Sanctuary

Healesville Sanctuary Keeper for a Day

Splash out with our keepers this Summer!

Aquatic animals have amazing adaptations. Come and work with our keepers to find out how we care for these amazing creatures including platypus, pelicans and turtles. Go behind-the-scenes to see how we help animals keep cool in summer. Keeper for a Day participants will work with Sanctuary staff, helping our keepers and learning about one of the most rewarding jobs!

You will go behind-the-scenes, taking part in many daily duties of a threatened species keeper, which could include:

  • Food preparation
  • Animal enrichment
  • Health checks
  • Animal contact
