Walkabout Australia opens at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park TODAY (May 25, 2018).
Yesterday I was treated to a media day to check it out and spend some time with a few of my favorites from back home.
There is a walking path through the wallaby and grey kangaroo enclosure. There are a few rules though, we don't want to scare our friends, so if you stick to the path, move slowly and quietly, and make sure not to feed them, then all will be well. They will hop across the path, and may even come up to you. You can touch them gently if they do, but please don't hold them. There was a very pregnant mama there today who seemed to have a few unusual pregnancy cravings (like wood benches), and they are a little shy and will take time to acclimate in their new environment.
