Unfortunately, we have had to close indoor animal viewing areas and walk-through exhibits. All of these animals do have outdoor enclosures where you’ll have the chance to see them, and we’ll be adapting routines to encourage them outside as much as possible.
Hop along to another walk-through enclosure which is home to our wallabies and kangaroos and was opened in 2010. These are related species and they get along very well. Their undulating paddock with its hill and caves in which to shelter from bad weather, lets you get as close to these amazing animals as you would down under!
You can play “spot the joey” by looking out for the babies in pouches! They pop in and out when they get a bit bigger and kids love to see their feet sticking out of mum’s pouch!
The larger kangaroos are very laid back and lie about, chilling in the sun. You can easily see the differences between kangaroos and wallabies at feeding times.
