Meet The Team

Roaming Wild is a locally owned and operated business offering fascinating and educational wildlife shows for children and adults of all ages. We will literally bring your next event to life with an interactive show featuring a collection of animals including crocodiles, possums, snakes, rabbits, turtles, and our beautiful blue and gold Macaw. Suitable for all ages and events including birthday parties, weddings, work functions, fetes, community and corporate events and meet and greets.

Roaming Wild also offer interactive displays for all types of venues from shopping centres, school fetes, grand-openings and community events. A Roaming Wild wildlife display will provide your visitors with a fascinating, educational experience where they will also be able to interact and take photos with some of our amazing animals – an experience which will be hard to forget!

We also provide curriculum-based educational programs for schools, day-care centres, kindergartens and OSHC with a face-to-face, interactive educational program brought to students in their own classroom environment. What better way to learn about our unique Australian wildlife than to get up-close and personal with these amazing creatures! 

Talia, owner of Roaming Wild, is a born and bred Cairns local with 17 years’ experience working with native Australian animals as a wildlife keeper and qualified veterinary nurse. Talia’s passion for all things scaly, furry and feathered began when she was just 5 years old while watching her idol Ranger Stacey on TV show Totally Wild every afternoon! Talia has since worked as a reptile keeper with some of Australia’s most venomous snakes including the Inland Taipan, Coastal Taipan and Eastern Brown. Saltwater crocodiles, cassowaries, koalas, kangaroos and numerous other natives have also occupied her time as well as some exotic bird species. For the last 3 years, Talia has been working as a wildlife educator on the Gold Coast, presenting wildlife shows and animal displays to schools, kindergartens, OSHC and children’s birthday parties. She is passionate, patient and enthusiastic and is excited to bring Roaming Wild to YOU!

All of Roaming Wild's animals are hand-raised within Talia's own family environment and are interacted with on a daily basis by Talia and her 6-, 10- and 12-year-old children. All of the animals are conditioned to being handled and thrive off the interaction!
