See Eastern Grey Kangaroos in the open-air Kangaroo Walk-About enclosure.
As cities along the east coast expand into forests and woodlands, Eastern Grey Kangaroos are coming into increasing contact with people.
They are found across a broad range of climates from Cape York to Tasmania. The further south you travel, the larger they are and the smaller the extremities (ears and tail).
They spend most of the day under cover of woodlands and forest but come out to graze a few hours before sunset and feed throughout the night, they then return to cover a few hours after sunrise.
If alarmed, they strike the ground with their feet with an almighty 'kathump', which signals to the predator that it has been spotted and to other kangaroos that danger is close by.
