Albert became devoted to public life and held a number of offices throughout his career he was an energetic member of the Board for the Concern of Aborigines, Usher of the Black Rod in the Victorian Legislative Council, and in 1882, became the director of the Zoological Gardens at Royal Park. Three of his sons, William, Ernest and Albert Sherbourne would succeed in their father's footsteps and become zoological gardens directors.
