Come meet Mischief and Milton, the Tasmanian devils!

The Australian Adventure is completely remodeled! You’ll begin your adventure at the Train Station, where you’ll cross the tracks and enter the new plaza.

Visit The Reef where you will find clownfish, a zebra moray eel, puffer fish, and more in this 20,000-gallon aquarium. Next on your trip is the 50,000 gallon shark aquarium which includes blacktip reef sharks, a zebra shark, and schooling fish!

Stingray Bay is sure to amaze you with close encounters!

See Australia’s feathery finest as you explore the three new aviaries. Look for cockatiels, parrots, lorikeets, egrets, and more.

Mix with our mob of eastern grey kangaroos – 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.
