Childcare Groups

Feature Creatures brings Australia’s unique wildlife direct to your childcare centre, playgroup or kindergarten !

Our interactive educational Animal Shows run for one fun filled hour


The  show is presented in front of a beautifully painted back drop of the

Australian bush with most of our animals tucked away behind this to allow the element of surprise for the children


All of our animals are incredibly tame and used to direct human contact as we have had them all since they were babies themselves


The children will be constantly stimulated in a wide variety of ways to assist their learning and shows are delivered specifically for the target age group


We provide the opportunity for individual participation, group activities, some singing and plenty of time to pat, touch, hold and explore the animal’s and their unique behaviours within the comfort of the children's limits


We also set up two Interactive touch tables displaying a wide variety of invertebrates and animal artifacts to explore


Two experienced Zoo Keepers/presenters will present the show to

create a fun hands on, educational encounter for the children and carers alike


The stars of the day include a:


  • Blue Tongued Lizard

  • Shingleback LIzard

  • Bearded Dragons

  • Hermit Crabs

  • Eastern Longnecked turtle, Adult and a Juvenile 

  • Green Tree Frog and Magnificent Tree Frog

  • A variety of harmless Stick Insects

  • A Salt or Freshwater Crocodile juvenile

  • A small python and an extra large python, both incredibly tame

  • Touch tables displaying spiders, centipedes, scorpions and other invertebrates in locked containers


The children will experience:


  • watching a frog use his eyes to help him eat a meal

  • learn about the unique behaviour of these fascinating cold creatures

  • feel the strength of a crocodiles tail

  • help feed the lizards their lunch with a snack of mealworms

  • learn what each animal needs to do to survive in the wild

  • learn how to attract frogs and other native animals to a garden

  • pat and handle a wide variety of tame animals


Our Animal Shows are delivered based on the general age group and we can cater our show to any of the centres current teachings or activities

The Feature Creatures team will ensure the children have the best possible experience and all are welcome


We can also provide activity sheets to use with the children long after the presentation has finished


We are fully insured and have had our "Working With Childrens Checks"
