Participating in the Volunteer Program does not guarantee employment at the Australian Reptile Park or within the zookeeping industry. Once accepted into the program, volunteers are required to pay a deposit of $70.00 to receive an Australian Reptile Park work shirt, name badge and covers the cost of both a Police and Working with children check. This money is held until the volunteer leaves the program and the shirt and badge is returned. Please ensure you attach a passport photo to your application, along with a medical certificate from your local GP stating that you’re fit for work.
All volunteers undergo a 4-week trial period during which completion of the Occupational, Health and Safety Manual is mandatory.
Volunteers receive a discount on certain purchases at our Kiosk.
