“We utilised Macadamia Castle’s Animal Encounters for a kids camp and were thoroughly impressed! The keepers were extremely friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about the animals as they engaged with the kids and adults in a way that was both informative and fun, answering questions throughout. The experience was not only fun but also educational as we learnt about how to handle potential wildlife scenarios in our own lives. Patting snakes was definitely a highlight for a lot of people! We had a great time and would definitely book again and recommend to others!” – Camp Quality

Vacation Care, Pre-schools, Camps and Schools

We bring to your school a specially trained collection of native Australian fauna – including birds, a range of reptiles and farmyard friends. Your students will have the opportunity to connect with native animals and discover how they can have an impact on native wildlife in their community.

Our fully-qualified Keepers will deliver an interactive and educational program to meet your needs and the age of the participants. They will display the animal’s physical characteristics and provide individual animal encounters, presenting the animals and developing participants understanding of the importance of conservation. Children will get the opportunity to see, touch, and learn about Australia’s amazing wildlife.

Group participation can include, interactive discussion, question time, animal observations and hands-on encounters while learning amazing wildlife facts.

If you would like a session on a specific topic please discuss this when making your booking.

Aged Care and Retirement Homes

Imagine having a range of furry and not so furry animals for your residents to meet! We have found our mobile animal exhibitions excite and engage people of all ages.

Our fully qualified Keepers will bring a wide variety of unique and wonderful animals including snakes, birds, reptiles and the more cuddly farmyard friends.

Our workshops can be modified to the comfort and desired involvement of the participants. Group participation can include; interactive discussion, question time, animal observations and hands-on encounters while learning amazing wildlife facts. We find many local residents grew up on farms and really enjoy getting back to nature and handling wildlife.

What a fantastic morning we had. To see so many smiles bought a tear to my eye thank you so much“.
