It’s time for an Australian walkabout!

As the Kansas weather warms up, our Australian exhibit comes alive with a barrage of colorful plants and animals that have been absent for many of the winter months. The bird population is especially lively here, from the five-foot-tall flightless double-wattled cassowary to the cockatoos foraging for food on the ground and in the trees.

During your visit, keep an eye out for the Tammar wallabies. These marsupials are able to withstand the cold Kansas winters and are commonly seen throughout the exhibit. Look closely – you may see the head of a joey sticking out of its mama’s pouch!
