Volunteer Programs

Become a part of our dedicated team and make a genuine contribution to the conservation and care of our captive Australian wildlife and enhance the experience of visitors to our wildlife park.

We work with a number of International volunteer program agents from all over world, our volunteer program runs for 4, 6 and 8 weeks.

The program is extremely popular and is often booked months in advance, so we do recommend you plan ahead if you wish to participate.

You will have the opportunity to work closely with our keepers in all aspects of their roles and through proven ability and enthusiasm you may have the opportunity to assume responsibility for key tasks.
