Koalafornia, the Australian Outback Exhibit at the San Diego Zoo is now open! We were invited to a sneak preview of the exhibit prior to it opening to the public, and loved it!
THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK EXHIBIT
Being born and raised in San Diego, I’ve spent a lot of time at the Zoo. As far back as I can remember, the koalas always had the same home, until now! The San Diego Zoo has an incredible new home for the koalas and their marsupial friends inside the Conrad Prebys Australian Outback exhibit, known to many locals as “Koalafornia“.
The Zoo’s Australian Outback is a 3 acre exhibit. It not only houses the 20+ Queensland koalas of the Zoo, but also wallabies, wombats, echidna, and a variety of birds native to Australia. One such bird is the kookaburra, such as Matilda, shown in the picture above at the bottom left hand corner.
