Healesville Sanctuary

Healesville Sanctuary Keeper for a Day

Be a keeper and go behind the scenes with Aussie animals!

Australian animals are unique. Meet our keepers and find out how we care for these amazing creatures including kangaroos, wombats and platypus. Keeper for a Day participants will work with Sanctuary staff, helping our keepers and learning about one of the most rewarding jobs! These school holidays we are celebrating our animal babies. Come along and learn about how we care for our youngest animals.

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
