The Savannah is an open-air exhibit that portrays both inland and coastal plains. Here guests are enticed to interact with and hand-feed a range of macropods from the statuesque Eastern Grey Kangaroo to the petite Parma Wallaby. Emus and Pelicans also freely range this large and open area. A feature to our Savannah Exhibit is the Lumholtz’s Tree Kangaroo, a rare tree-climbing kangaroo found only in the rainforests of The Wet Tropics.
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.
The Savannah is also home to our Predator Plank, the world’s first plank walk over giant Estaurine Crocodiles! Guests can see Babinda, our giant Estaurine crocodile and his four girlfriends.
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.
