Australia’s most famous residents have made their debut in a new habitat at Nashville Zoo. Kangaroo Kickabout gives guests the opportunity to enter the home of 17 red kangaroos.
Kangaroo Kickabout features 4,500 square feet of naturalistic Australian landscape. Guests can view the ‘roos from an outside area, or get a closer experience by walking a winding path through the middle of the habitat. While guests must stay on the pathway, kangaroos are free to wander the exhibit. Kangaroo Kickabout will also include four triton cockatoos, a subspecies of the sulfur-crested cockatoo found in New Guinea and its surrounding islands. Zoo keepers will be on hand at all times to answer questions and monitor the animals and guests.
Kangaroo Kickabout is made possible thanks to the generous support from Zoo board chairman Jim Hunt and his wife, Sally. This is the second habitat supported by the Hunt Family after their 2005 support to open Lorikeet Landing.
