Wetlands is a breathtaking environment within Wildlife Habitat. Discover a wide variety of native birds in and out of the water, also home to the Koalas and a small fruit bat colony. This area is a fantastic representation of the natural wetlands in our region. Don’t forget the ‘Stork Walk’ to get a bird’s eye view of the beautiful Black Necked Storks.
A favourite of children and adults alike! Grab some roo food and head to the open-air Savannah Habitat. Hand feed the friendly kangaroos and Wallabies. Home to the world’s first Predator Plank!
