Dingo Country Talk3.15pm every day
Prance with a pack of one of Australia’s most iconic animals – the Dingo. In our high country exhibit, you can see this threatened species close up, and learn about its complex history.
A distant relative of the Indian Wolf, the Dingo arrived in mainland Australia around 5,000 years ago. They're a naturally shy animal with an independent nature. Pack leaders breed once a year and the whole pack helps rear the pups. Dingoes howl at different frequencies to communicate their territory boundaries and pack make-up.
