Australian Adventures Now Open

About the habitat

Australian Adventures is an engaging immersive experience featuring Bennett’s wallabies that will bounce alongside exploring guests. Free-flying budgies and cockatiels welcome and delight, along with playful emu, watchful tawny-frog mouths and singing kookaburras. Yellow-footed wallabies gracefully scale the Australian rock formations showing off their climbing abilities, and a variety of Australian reptiles bask in the sunny habitat.

Discover these special desert species and feel like you're visiting the incredible land down under!

Australia is the driest inhabited continent in the world, with deserts receiving less than 10 inches of rainfall per year. Many similarities exist between Californian and Australian deserts, but the continent’s geographic isolation, long geologic history, and diverse climates result in sustaining a variety of animals that are unique to Australia.
