Australian flair

experience it in Görlitz - it becomes possible in our Australian Outback which opened in 2018.

The facility for the eastern gray kangaroos is occasionally accessible for Animal presentationexclusive animal encounter as well as other special occasions when accompanied by our zoo staff - a unique opportunity for very special animal encounters with the gentle giants!

A true kangaroo paradise with diverse structures was created on an area of around 1000m². Sun and shade places, living vegetation, tree trunks, hills and a shallow water pond provide many incentives for behavior. The elevated level in the outdoor and indoor area opens completely new perspectives on the exciting marsupials.

Kangaroos and visitors lack nothing in the newly built heated stable building. A large panoramic window to the stable allows fascinating insights and views for animals and humans even during the cooler season. A new barrier-free visitor toilet (funded by the Sächsisches Staatsministerium für Soziales und Verbraucherschutz „Lieblingsplätze für alle“), a drinking water fountain and a themed jump playground fill the gap in the zoo's previous infrastructure and the place with even more life.
