Join the team

As the proud owners of Caversham Wildlife Park since 1988, we couldn't do it without the support and dedication of our team who work incredibly hard to maintain a world-class park.

Thank you for your interest in joining the CWP team.

The Thorne family.


Caversham Wildlife Park is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from individuals of all backgrounds. 


Working in a wildlife park is far more than just a job!

Our retail staff have the opportunity to work in dynamic tourist attraction where they get to engage with people from all over the world, in a fast-paced and unique work environment.

Our park staff get the best of both worlds; working with both people and animals! It is challenging, hands-on and highly rewarding.

Docent and Volunteer

Joining the team as a Docent or Volunteer is a unique opportunity to be involved in a dynamic team who share similar interests.

Our Docents play an important role in the WA Tourism industry by ensuring visitors to the park have a great experience and go home with amazing memories.

Our Volunteers have the opportunity to work alongside our keepers, and gain industry skills and experience.

Almost anyone can get involved without having prior qualifications, skills or experience - you just need a love of working with people and animals!
