Australien flair

Experience in Görlitz - this is possible in the Australian outback opened in 2018.

The facility for the eastern gray kangaroos is in context of our Animal presentationexclusive animal encounter such as special occasions accompanied walkable together with 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 around 1000m². Sun and shade places, living vegetation, tree trunks, hills and a shallow water pond provide many incentives for behavior. The raised level in the exterior and interior creates completely new perspectives on the exciting marsupials.

Kangaroos and visitors are not lacking anything in the newly built, heated stable building. A large panoramic window to the stable provides fascinating insights and views for animals and humans even during the cooler season. The new barrier-free visitor toilet (funded by the Sächsisches Staatsministerium für Soziales und Verbraucherschutz „Lieblingsplätze für alle“), a drinking water fountain and the themed jump playground fill a gap in the zoo's previous infrastructure and the place with even more life.
