Big things are coming Down Under...

BREAKING NEWS...The Zoo’s popular Australia exhibit, which features wallabies, Budgie Buddies, and the reptiles that reside in the Scutes Family Gallery, is in for some big changes! The Zoo’s next project is to renovate the guest-favorite exhibit, making significant improvements in this area, providing better and more accessible space for our guests, our keepers, and most importantly, our animals!

This project will create many exciting changes including:

  • An entirely new wallaby exhibit
  • Expansion to our existing Budgie Buddy exhibit
