Career Awareness Day

If you’re passionate about wildlife and interested in a career with animals and conservation, be sure to join us for our next Career Awareness Day.  This special day gives you a chance to learn all about how you might become part of the zoo team one day too.  It’s a great chance to meet staff from a range of careers at the zoo – from animal and plant care to administration and management.  Hear about how our staff became part of the zoo team and learn how you can get that competitive edge to land your dream job!

2019 Career Awareness Days are open to students in Years 10, 11 and 12. We also invite Year 9 students to apply for the Term 4 program.


Things to consider:

Students are responsible for gaining permission to attend the Career Awareness days with their individual schools and parents/guardians.

Teachers or other staff do not attend these programs so students are also responsible for arranging their own transport.

Cost: $38/student including lunch.

The dates for 2019 are:

  • Term 1: March 22, Friday, Week 8 – complete
  • Term 2: June 28, Friday, Week 9 – booked out
  • Term 3: September 6,  Friday Week 7
  • Term 4: November 22, Friday Week 6 – available to Year 9 – 12 students

The next available Career Awareness Day will be running on Friday 6th September 2019.
