We’re celebrating Australia Day at the Zoo!
Heralded as one of the most distinctive places on earth, Australia is not only a massive island and its own country, but it is also the only country in the world that is also a continent! Australia’s more than 2.7 million square miles are also home to some of the world’s most unique species; more than 800,000 different types of species to be exact!

Come to the Virginia Zoo and take a stroll through the Australia Walkabout to meet our gang of wallabies and emu. Walk along the pathway through the exhibit and experience our animals in an immersive way, then enjoy animal enrichment and a Keeper Chat.

Australia Walkabout open 10 am to 4 pm

Animal enrichment and Keeper Chat at 2 pm.
