The Ballarat Wildlife Park’s ‘Junior Keeper Program’ is an incredible three-hour experience hosted by some of the Wildlife Park’s experienced keepers, for children 6-15 years old.

The Junior Keepers will be introduced to various animals and learn fascinating facts about a range of different species.

From preparing food, to raking up roo poo, Junior Keepers will learn to work as a team and get a great incite into what it takes to care for the animals.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
