Animal Feeding Times

Monitoring the eating habits and diets of all of our animals is a very important part of our keeper’s day. What an animal eats is an essential aspect of its biology.

One of our favourite times of the day is feeding our animals. We invite you to join us during these free public feeding times and see what they get up to.

Please note, due to different animal requirements and behaviours, feeding times are guided by daily weather conditions and may change when temperatures reach 37 degrees and above or fall to 20 degrees and below. For further enquiries, please speak with one of our friendly ticket office staff upon arrival.

12.30pm Lorikeets

1.30pm Snakes and Reptiles - Due to the current COVID-associated risks to our staff and animals, we’ve made the decision to place a temporary pause on this experience, in line with other accredited Zoo and Aquarium Association Australasia Institutions. We understand these special experiences provide a fantastic opportunity for visitors to connect on a deeper level with our animals, our wildlife keepers and with our purpose of helping to Engage, Learn and Conserve.
