Located in Wallaroo Station, this habitat lets you hop around with a mob—that's wallaby for "group", mates—of yellow-footed rock wallabies. Depending on time of year, you might also catch a glimpse of a joey (baby wallaby) peeking out from mom's pouch. Wallabies are smaller marsupials in the kangaroo family, with adults ranging from 6-20 lbs.
