School Holiday Programs in Perth

Kaarakin’s Wildlife Guardians School Holiday programs provide an opportunity for children to engage with nature through wildlife interaction and environmental based activities.

Children have two programs specially designed for their capabilities and interests:

  • Junior Wildlife Guardians, family program for 5 – 12 year olds and a parent or guardian; and
  • Bird Bonanza event for ages 10 and above.

All Wildlife Guardians programs are run at the Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre located at 322 Mills Road East, Martin.  Entry is at the west end of the site up from the large guest parking area.  When you arrive, drive through the main entrance and turn right, the unsealed road will take you down to the large carpark.

BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL and conditions do apply, see the booking page for more details.

Junior Wildlife Guardians (5-12 years)

This is a short (2-hour) program focusing on nature connection through Australian native wildlife, providing 5 – 12 year olds an opportunity to meet and interact with black cockatoos, dingoes, kangaroos and emus.

These events are run mostly outdoors around our education building in direct proximity to the interactive black cockatoo aviary where children and parents can talk to the attention loving birds.  Through animal tours and activities, children can learn about Australian wildlife and conservation, as well as getting involved in our work by making animal enrichment toys and native plantings (depending on the season).

Cost is $25 per child with free entry for one supervising adult (additional adults $25 each).

UPCOMING SESSIONS: Saturday 13 April 2019, 9:30 AM.  NUMBERS STRICTLY LIMITED so book now!
