Take an all Aussie adventure through the wild Australian bush. Say g’day to Southern Koalas, Tasmanian Devils, wombats, kangaroos and a whole range of native birdlife including, Red-tailed Black Cockatoos, parrots, honeyeaters and more.
Learn all about these amazing animals, and discover a selection of Australia’s 20,000 flowering plants as you pass through this scenic trail.
Our famous koalas live in eastern Australia. Their lean, muscular body and strong limbs make koalas well suited to life in the trees; their five-digit paws are especially useful for gripping branches. Sadly, we are at risk of losing large populations due to habitat loss and a disease called Chlamydia.
The Great Flight Aviary
The Great Flight Aviary is alive with glorious sights and sounds. Listen to a choir of bird calls, and see brightly coloured feathers overhead and waders pecking below. Spot the Red-tailed Black Cockatoos, Wonga Pigeons, Rainbow Lorikeets and Jabirus. The aviary is also home to chatty parrots, honeyeaters, ducks and many other feathered friends.
The Tasmanian Devil is the largest living carnivorous marsupial in the world. Their toothy yawns can look a little frightening, but they do it when they're frightened. If you're "lucky", you'll hear them make an eerie sound! The devil is endangered and we're working with partners to help save this iconic species from extinction.
Kangaroo Island Kangaroo
Our mob of kangaroos comes from Kangaroo Island in South Australia, where winters are cold. This is why their fur is thicker and denser than most other kangaroos. They eat lots of different things including the bark from leafy branches. NOTICE: The kangaroo habitat is currently closed for maintenance.
Conservation StatusLeast Concern
Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat
The Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat is the most social of the three wombat species. These wombats are found in southern Australia and southeast Western Australia. They have short legs and large front feet, with bear-like claws. The pouch of the wombat faces backwards to protect the joey from dirt while mama wombats dig!
Conservation StatusNear Threatened
The kookaburra is a type of kingfisher native to Australia and New Guinea. There are four species and all are carnivorous, eating mice, small reptiles and insects. Most kookaburras are territorial. Their distinctive laughing call isn't a friendly chortle; it's the way they warn other birds to stay away!
