Keeper Talks

Daily talks: 11:00am and 2:00pm

Our twice daily talks are optional and an excellent opportunity as they are included in the entrance fee!

Don’t miss out on the chance to be introduced by our informative and friendly Keepers to some of our amazing wildlife residents. Learn about just how special our unique Australian animals, birds and reptiles are and why they are all so crucial to our natural world.

These talks are guaranteed to enhance your experience and leave you with lots of great memories of Potoroo Palace.

On Wednesdays through the wintery months we want to add something a little bit special for locals.

In place of the daily Keeper Talks, we will instead have 2 daily sessions featuring wombats!

It will be an opportunity to see a wombat up close, and to learn more about one of Australia’s favourite marsupials.

Meeting time and place will be the same; at the train station at 11am or 2pm where the keeper will meet visitors and take them on a brief tour up to our wombats sanctuary home.
