Join your host and our passionate Reptile Keepers for a behind-the-scenes tour of our Reptile House, and meet-and-greet some of the amazing snake, tortoise and lizard species that call it home. View and participate in animal care (this may vary depending on the day), all whilst learning about how our keepers provide for reptiles’ unique requirements.

Finish off with an exclusive tour of the Butterfly House and Caterpillar Greenhouse, where the keepers will show you what goes into keeping our insects happy and healthy.

Along the way, learn about some of Fighting Extinction species, including the Lord Howe Island Stick Insect and the Southern Corroboree Frog.

Each encounter will be unique, allowing our keepers to let the individual animals shine and give them the choice and control on how they participate.

Zoo entry not included. Book your entry tickets for the same date as your encounter.
