To Our Valued Guests: Phase III of the new Australian Adventure renovation began on August 11, 2015. Portions of the Australian adventure west of the bridge will be closed for the remainder of the 2015 season. Closed exhibits include kangaroos, dingoes, the River Ride, and the Walkabout Aviary. Thank you for your understanding as we work to improve your zoo.
Phase I of the new Australian Adventure is already open! You’ll begin your adventure at the Train Station, where you’ll cross the tracks and enter the new Oceanside Plaza.
Phase II is nearly complete: Pay a visit to The Reef where you will find clown fish, eels, puffer fish, and more in this 20,000-gallon aquarium. The 50,000 gallon shark aquarium includes blacktip reef sharks, a zebra shark, and schooling fish! Opening in late August of 2015, Stingray Bay is sure to amaze you with close encounters with stingrays!
See Australia’s feathery finest as you explore the Walkabout Aviary. Look for cockatiels, parrots, lorikeets, egrets, kookaburras, and more. Mix with our mob of eastern grey kangaroo– sometimes they hop right across the path! Don’t miss a glimpse of the dingoes hiding in the tall grass as you conclude your Australian Adventure.
