Our Wildlife


White Kangaroo

Our animal enclosures provide an opportunity to see some of our amazing Australian native animals close up.

Southern Hairy Nose wombats, Brush-tail possums, Squirrel gliders, snakes and lizards are only the start.

What is a Macropod?

Macropods are marsupials (they have a pouch that their babies live in until developed) and include kangaroos, wallabies, and much more. The term macropod is Greek and means ‘big foot’. Macropods vary in size from 500g to 90kg, and use their powerful hind legs, strong tail and big feet to cover large distances in every hop.

Did you know? Kangaroos are the largest marsupial surviving on earth today. 

On your visit you can meet our friendly macropods including Western Grey kangaroo, unique Red White kangaroos, Bennet wallabies, Tasmanian pademelons, Long-nose potoroos, Rufus bettongs and Brush-tail bettongs.

And don’t forget to say hello to our resident feathered friends – Tawny Frog Mouth, Brush Stone curlew, owl, Sulphur-Crested cockatoo and Major Mitchell cockatoos!
