Get Within a Whisker

Monarto Zoo offers exciting opportunities for you to get even closer to some of your favourite animal friends.  Simply join one of our interactive, behind the scenes and up close experiences.  You could experience the thrill of helping put the lions to bed, meeting the chimp troop or hand feed a giraffe … plus much more!  Our keeper presentations are also a great free way to meet our animals and their carers.

To find about more and to book contact our friendly staff on (08) 8267 3255 or simply book online. 

Please note, we are currently experiencing technical issues with member numbers online which may cause some problems while booking behind the scenes experiences and events. If you do experience this please call (08) 8267 3255 during business hours. We apologise for any inconvenience.
