Kangaroo Kountry at the Zoo!

The Land Down Under isn’t as far away as you might think, thanks to the new exhibit at the Birmingham Zoo.

Kangaroo Kountry is located just past the Lorikeet Aviary before getting to the alligator swamp. This new exhibit is a fresh take on displaying our zoo animals. You are able to get an up close look at the red kangaroos and wallabies that are native to Australia. The area has several hands-on activities for the children, from mining in the shaft to expressing their creativity with the outdoor chalk available for drawing on the large boulder.

The area is shaded and offers seating for those wanting to sit and do a little ‘roo watching.

Strollers are not permitted inside the area, which could prove to be slightly challenging if you are the mom of multiples or stroller age children. Stroller parking is located right outside of the exhibit.

Even though the weather is warming up, this should be on your list of things to do this summer. You can always take the little joey’s over to the fountains to cool off after your visit to the Outback!
