Australia & Oceania

Australia and OceaniaExplore the land down under! Australia is home to one of the most unique and interesting groups of animals, the marsupials. These are mammals that carry their babies in a pouch until the baby matures. Our outback trail will bring you nose-to-nose with wallabies and a kangaroo.

Inside the building, dive into the Great Barrier Reef with colorful coral reef fish. Learn what size a baby kangaroo is at birth, hear the kookaburra laugh, and read about the aboriginal people, a culture time has forgotten.

We’ve recently renamed this building Australia & Oceania to increase conservation awareness of the ecologically diverse and important tropical Pacific Ocean region.
