Sign for Walkabout Creek at the Racine Zoo in Racine, WI
Walkabout Creek is the new Australian-themed immersive exhibit at the Racine Zoo that allows zoo guests to walk among the creatures native to Australia. These include kangaroos, wallaroos, black swans and emus. Walkabout Creek covers about two and one-half acres and ultimately will be home to six or seven species native to Australia. While all are accustomed to the changing seasons, a state-of-the-art all-weather shelter house on the west side of the site allows Walkabout Creek inhabitants to enjoy indoor accommodations when they wish.
