Save a Mate Ranger

Let us guide your wildlife-loving-child through a truly memorable and educational day at Paradise Country. Save a Mate Rangers (children aged 6-13 years) will work side-by-side with our Wildlife Keepers from 9:00am - 2:00pm taking part in daily duties like animal feeding and enrichment, park preparation and animal handling.

This program will allow Rangers to come face to face with incredible animals like kangaroos, wombats, Tasmanian Devils, dingoes, koalas, marmosets, meerkats and more!

After a busy morning on the farm, Rangers can enjoy a delicious lunch beside the Marmoset Exhibit at the Farmhouse Restaurant. To remember your time as a Ranger, all participants will receive a printed koala photo and a Save a Mate cap. The program is fully supervised by a qualified Wildlife Keeper.
