The National Zoo & Aquarium is Australia’s only combined Zoo and Aquarium. They are situated on around 7 hectares of land just five minutes from the centre of Canberra. They care for a wide variety of both native and exotic animals, as well as the largest inland saltwater tank in Australia containing a range of marine life. They have a number of opportunities that may be available throughout the year for students to volunteer their time to help staff at the zoo. Be sure to check this page regularly to see what they’re offering!
