Keeper talks

Join us every week for our animal keeper talk series where you can meet the keepers and learn more about the animals at our zoos.

NEW - Dingos of Healesville Sanctuary



Virtual animal encounters

Sit down and enjoy being transported to Healesville Sanctuary for the Wade with the Platypus or Werribee Open Range Zoo for a Giraffe Encounter!

While the community focuses on looking after people, we’ll keep looking after wildlife - but we need your help.

Live animal cams

Check out the 24/7 live streams or watch the limited-time-only appearances from other special guests. If you missed it, you can catch up on what you missed by clicking back on the red line underneath the video.

Can’t see the animals on the live cams? That’s because our animals live in areas that are much bigger than what a camera can capture.

Resident live streams (running 24/7)
