Busch Gardens Tampa recently announced that a new area dedicated to Australian animals will is now open. Walkabout Way features kangaroos and wallabies and you’ll have the chance to pet and feed them, too!
Throughout the day, you can also hand-feed the animals. There will be scheduled feedings a few times each day. For $5, you get a cup of food and can have the animals feeding right out of your hand. But note, the area is for ages 5 and older. In addition to the roos and wallabies, Walkabout Way will also include other Australian species, including magpie geese and Australian black swans. There’s also the Kookaburra’s Nest, a free-flight aviary in Walkabout Way that will feature -- what else --kookaburras!
Walkabout Way is included in park admission, and expands the array of animal encounters Busch Gardens offers.
