The Savannah is an open-air exhibit that portrays both inland and coastal plains. Here guests are enticed to interact with a range of macropods from the statuesque Eastern Grey Kangaroo to the petite Parma Wallaby. The billabong is home to turtles, frogs and a range of waterfowl while also attracting a host of native bird varieties. Over forty species have been recorded utilising the exhibit as a refuge for breeding. View lagoons where both Estuarine and Freshwater crocodiles lurk beneath the murky waters or bask on the sunlit banks. A feature to this area is the Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroo, a rare tree-climbing kangaroo found only in the rainforests of The Wet Tropics.
Follow the wallaby walk to meet our resident kangaroos and wallabies. Purchase Roo Food from the reception or café for the opportunity to hand-feed. Please note during the warmer months, our kangaroos and wallabies will be most active in the early morning and late afternoon.
