Australia House

Retreat to the world down under when you step into Australia House and discover fascinating animals from this continent. Watch a pair of echidnas nose about in a dirt pile, or spot wombats as they scurry for their burrow. Free-flying Rodriques fruit bats often soar overhead and can also be found resting as they hang from the ceiling. Roam the outdoor landscape to see emus and step onto the overlook platform to view a mob of kangaroos.
