What you will see at Walkabout Park ...


With very few exceptions, our animals are not in cages.

Walkabout Park covers 170 acres, half of which is protected by feral predator proof fencing, so the animals thrive in their natural habitat, safe from the dangers introduced by people - foxes, cats, dogs and cars.

The 'Sanctuary Experience', quite different from a zoo

As soon as you enter the sanctuary, you'll be greeted by koalas, emus, kangaroos, wallabies and pademelons moving freely through the beautiful bushland. The moment when you really feel connected is when one of the hand-raised eastern grey kangaroo or swamp wallaby orphans hops up behind you and then stands patiently, waiting to have its back tickled.

But the most exciting way to enjoy Walkabout Park is to actually go walkabout, with the rangers along the tracks.

You never know what to expect

A koala snoozing in the shade, swamp wallabies browsing in the underbrush, a python easing its way through the bush, a kookaburra catching a lizard, pademelons squabbling under the boardwalk, a joey diving into its mother's pouch as you walk past, a goanna swaying through the undergrowth, or a pair of emus cooling off in the dam.

Listen to the stories the rangers tell of the animals and how they survive in the bush

Observe the different ways the animals have adapted to the harsh Australian environment, and how the plants protect themselves from over-grazing. Follow 'tracks and scats', looking for the places the animals sleep and feed. Search for the signs that animals have been hunting and foraging for food. Learn about different animals' needs for shelter and survival. See the effects of climate change on the way animals live. Compare the different environments and how the animals behave inside and outside Walkabout Park's fox-proof fence.

You will see mammals, birds, reptiles, frogs, insects and spiders, including:
Koalas Galahs
Eastern grey & Red kangaroos Long-nosed potoroos
Different types of wallabies Tawny frogmouths
