Has your class been studying wildlife? Why not include one of our educational keeper sessions in your visit and build on what your students have been learning in the classroom.
Our experienced wildlife handlers will present a 30 minute structured keeper session to your class which will include a hands on experience with a variety of different animals, birds or reptiles.
Our hands on approach encourages active involvement and the development of mutual trust between students and animals. The delicate balance of our ecosystem and the need for conservation are highlighted through this interactive approach with animals.
See all your favorite Aussie animals such as Dingoes, Tasmanian Devils, Wombats, Echidnas, the unusual Fruit Bats, Ghost Bats, Bilby and more. Walk amongst and feed the Kangaroos and Wallabies including the white (albino) varieties. There are Koalas to view in their trees or enjoy a cuddle at one of our holding sessions.
We have a variety of monkey species including White-handed Gibbons, playful Capuchin Monkeys, the small Cotton-top Tamarins and Common Marmosets, Ring-tailed Lemurs and Spider Monkeys.
A colony of curious Meerkats is everyone’s favorite as are the Oriental Small-Clawed Otters. The statue-like American Alligators make you wonder if they are actually alive!
With over a 150 species of birds, we have everything from the smallest Wrens to the largest Ostrich. Our birds include a vast variety of parrots, cockatoos, birds of prey, land birds such as the Emu, Cassowary, and others.
As well as birds in aviaries we have many free-flying species. See the beautiful peacocks roaming the park and the spectacular colors of the Rainbow Lorikeets when they come in to feed.
Our lake areas display a large range of waterbirds including many wild birds that come in to feed. Walk-in aviaries allow you to view our beautiful birds from the inside of their displays.
Outdoor enclosures display many native reptiles such as Lace Monitors, Water and Bearded Dragons, Blue-tongue Lizards, Sleepy Lizards, and Turtles.
Our new reptile house has some intriguing displays housing both exotic and native reptiles including Common Green Iguanas, Gila Monsters and snakes such as Boa Constrictors, Corn Snakes, Carpet Snakes, and Children’s Python. You will also find fish, frogs and small marsupials. These displays will keep you looking for more!.
