Discover what it’s like to work at Werribee Open Range Zoo!

Keeper for a Day is a school holiday program designed for secondary school students who are interested in caring for wildlife and working at the zoo.

Heading behind the scenes, you will get a hands-on experience of what it’s like to work as a zoo keeper as you take part in the daily duties, such as animal enrichment and exhibit maintenance.

See our animals up-close, head on a special safari tour across the Savannah, and speak with our keepers about their jobs and experience.
