New Australian Walkabout experience at Busch Gardens gets you up close and personal with the kangaroos!
Busch Gardens is known for amazing rollercoasters, shows, rides, and animals. Most come to this world-class theme park for the rides, however, I go for the amazing animal interactions and encounters. Recently, I had the chance to check out the Australian Walkabout experience where you get an amazing up-close encounter with the kangaroos and wallabies. Let’s take a look at what you can expect from this amazing tour!
First off, the tour costs $12.00 and is offered daily (weather permitting) for an hour around 2 pm. If you want to participate in this tour I would highly recommend checking with the desk in front of the kangaroos early in the day to see the exact times. The tour allows you to take a step inside the animal enclosure to feed the kangaroos, pet them, take photos with them and talk to the keepers!
During the 10 minute interaction, I got the chance to pet and hand feed some of the kangaroos. The kangaroos can be fed throughout the day however during this hands-on interaction you get special food like fruit that they absolutely love! During this time you can get some amazing photos of the roos, and maybe even a selfie with someone from down under!
Most tours at Busch Gardens allow you special access and will cost you around 40 bucks or more which makes this encounter special, and very affordable! Busch Gardens does an amazing job at putting entertainment and education together and this encounter is an example of just that!
