Save your money, Save our planet!

Every item we use has an environmental cost, some greater than others. By managing our waste in accordance with the 5 Rs, we can all make a difference by being mindful of the waste we generate.

We offer the following discounts to encourage you to Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose & Recycle.


BYOC Guests receive discounts on their hot drinks. If you don’t yet have a reusable cup you can purchase one from our reusable range to use time and time again.


Zoo staff wear their conservation tee-shirts on Tuesdays, you can wear yours any day of the week, although a 25% discount on entry applies for Tuesdays!


Participate in the following programs by bringing along your unwanted items to receive a 10% discount.

Snuggle Coats

Donating fur clothing to this cause ‘gives it back to the animals’. Fur clothing donated to Snuggle Coats get disassembled and passed onto wildlife carers to rehabilitate and enrich the lives of animals in their care. These furs can act as a surrogate comfort for injured wildlife during the rehabilitation process. Removing these items from wardrobes also helps to remove fur from fashion!

Donate an item of fur clothing to receive this entry discount. Only real fur accepted.

Planet Ark

Printer cartridges are made up of a complex mix of plastics, metal, inks and toners and thus represent a significant investment in resources. When they are disposed of into landfill these resources are lost. Australians send 34 printer cartridges to landfill every minute. This program collects and returns cartridges for remanufacturing and recycling.

Donate a used ink cartridge to receive this discount.

Phone Cycle

Mobile phones and tablet devices are packed with reusable materials including precious metals, plastics and copper. Recycling these devices means these materials can be conserved. Recycling your mobile phone also raises funds for animals in the wild. Funds raised by Zoodoo & Phone Cycle will support the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation

Donate a mobile phone or tablet device to receive the discount.

Bread Tags for Wheelchairs

Bread tags are made of High Impact Polystyrene which has a good recycling value. This value is used by Bread Tags for Wheelchairs to provide wheelchairs to adults and children around South Africa. Having a wheelchair gives the recipient independence and mobility and this makes a big difference to their families as well. Collecting bread tags, even broken ones, makes a difference to our environment too as they are recycled into seedling trays, picture frames, coat hangers and other items instead of going directly to landfill.

Donate 10 bread tags to receive this discount.

10% discount is off full priced entry tickets only.
Cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer

Volunteering at Zoodoo

Our volunteers play a vital role in supporting our work and helping us to achieve our purpose to connect people with nature and save species from extinction.

Volunteering for Zoodoo is a wonderful opportunity to make a lasting contribution to our important wildlife conservation advocacy work while helping the zoo and its unique animal residents. Volunteers also experience some amazing moments, make new friends and create life-long memories.

Our volunteers love the outdoors, animals and interacting and engaging with people. Our generous volunteers contribute across our zoos through a range of people-facing and behind the scenes roles. Oftentimes they are they are the public face of the zoo and key connectors with guests to our animal and conservation stories.

As a volunteer you’ll gain knowledge, develop skills and use the skills and experiences you already posses, to contribute positively to our Zoo programs.

Due to the changes brought about by Covid-19, our volunteer program is currently on hold until further notice.

Please note: Almost all of our roles DO NOT involve working directly with our animals. In the rare instance when these types of roles are available, they are offered to suitable candidates from within our existing volunteer pool.

To become a volunteer you must:

  • Be 18 years of age to apply.
  • Have a current National Police Check or WWCC or be willing to undergo a screening;
  • Be a current Zoo Crew Annual Member;
  • Commit to regular service of about 180 hours per year of service. A weekly or at least fortnightly shift is expected so you can remain engaged and up-to-date with our organisation.
  • Have your own email address and are comfortable or willing to learn, to use smart phones, tablets or PCs to access email, so you can use our online roster system, e-learning and access communication updates.
  • Undertake our volunteer training and agree to act in accordance with our values, policies, procedures and processes.

If your interests match to our current recruitment needs you will be invited to attend a short ‘matching meeting’ via Zoom so we can see if you match to our program, values and culture, and that we match to your expectations!

NOTE: Selection to be a volunteer is a competitive process due to the limited places in our programs, compared to the number of applications we receive. However, applications are retained on our database unless you ask us to remove it.

We are seeking passionate, committed, curious, adaptable, positive & cheerful people who desire to serve our organisation as volunteers.


Attendance to commence training with Zoodoo will be by invitation. Those who match our recruitment needs will be contacted and invited to attend a matching interview via Zoom, to ensure that we are a match for each other, before an invite is offered.


Applications will be retained for future intakes unless you notify us to archive your application.

All applicants who are interviewed will be notified if they match to our programs or not.
