Become a Penguin Keeper for a day! An immersive journey into the world of the smallest penguin in the world. There’s nothing quite like a day spent learning from our specialist Keepers.

In this ‘deep dive’ into aquatic avian life, children join our Penguin Keepers and assist them in their daily routine looking after our wonderful Kororā, Little Blue Penguins. Experience includes exclusive backstage access to the Vet Room and Penguin Feeding Pulpit. This is the type of behind-the-scenes encounter lifelong memories are made of!
