Kangaroo on walkabout
Lands of Change: Australia and Beyond


Brimming with upgrades and additions, Lands of Change: Australia and Beyond puts a new spin on the beloved Australasia section of the Zoo. This area is now open daily from 10 am –  5 pm. Here’s what you and your family have to look forward to:

  • Komodo dragons (the world’s largest lizards and a new species to the Zoo)
  • A walk-through kangaroo habitat
  • Redesigned cockatiel and lorikeet aviaries
  • A 100-seat theater for educational presentations
  • The return of Visayan warty pigs, wrinkled hornbills, cassowaries, emus and more

This project is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council of Arts and Culture and the State of Florida. Additional support comes from Ron and Lynne DiMenna, the Kirschenbaum family and the Swann family.
