    Martin Guignard volunteer 2017.

    Martin Guignard volunteered at Walkabout Park in 2017. He wrote this delightful song about the animals and people. Musically meet the ostrobogulous animals that Australia concocted on her side of the globe during millions of years of isolated evolution.

    Step into the animals' world.

    We love this video. Ours really are the friendliest wild-living wild animals in Australia. If you love animals but you don't like to see them in zoos, this working wildlife sanctuary is a wonderful place to visit. You can meet kangaroos, emus and wallabies living free in 80 acres of Australian bush.

    Animal Adoptions

    Sponsor a species. When you adopt an animal you help us to care for the animals at Walkabout Park AND you contribute to our education and conservation work to protect all threatened species. Together, we can work for the conservation of Australia's threatened and endangered species and local landscapes.

    Make a Donation

    100% of your donation goes to the sanctuary. To the upkeep of the animals, the bush and the Aboriginal sites we care for. Our owners have never taken a salary. Help protect our local species and their endangered habitats. This would not be possible without financial support from our community.

    Recycle & Reuse

    If you've got good stuff at home you don't need, there's a good chance that we might need it here. Glass panels, blenders, aviaries, shelving, hoses. We throw away so many things on a daily basis. Why not let us at Walkabout Park find creative ways to recycle and reuse them? Don't forget to always recycle responsibly.

    Life's Too Short to Stay at Home

    You never know who you will meet

    Walkabout Park protects the natural bush home of a mob of free-ranging friendly but wild kangaroos and their ground-dwelling and tree-living mammal friends, over 100 types of birds come and go such as the Superb Lyrebird, Laughing Kookaburra and Glossy Black Cockatoo, and more than 40 types of reptiles and frogs live in the rocks and ponds from the Diamond Python to the Eastern Froglet.

    Plus most of Australia's iconic animal species, from Koalas to Tasmanian Devils and Wombats - many rescued orphaned or injured, or part of 'breed-for-release' programs - are cared for by the rangers in various natural camps.

    Don't worry - it's not real!

    You never know who you will meet

    Sometimes you just need to poke a croc!

    The fun thing about a pretend crocodile is you can poke it with a stick and it doesn't get mad and eat you. Life's Too Short to Stay at Home.
