Healesville Sanctuary Keeper for a Day

Find out what it takes to be a keeper!

These school holidays we are celebrating our Spring Babies. Come and discover how our keepers care for animal babies and what it takes to fight extinction. Go behind-the-scenes to see our unique captive breeding programs. Keeper for a Day participants will  work with Sanctuary staff, helping out 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
