Wallaroo Station

Wallaroo Station 2

G'day, mates! Fancy a walk-about with a wallaby? Or a close encounter with a koala? Then take a stroll through Tampa's own land down under, Wallaroo Station. This Australia-themed family area provides hours of enjoyment and discovery, including an interactive petting zoo, a water play area, delicious dining, a mommy center and the Tasmanian Tiger Family Roller Coaster.

Wallaby Walkabout

Wallaby_Walkabout

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.

Wallaroo Petting Zoo

Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo is a globally recognized, accredited zoological society and one of the more popular tourist destinations in Tampa, Florida. We offer over one million annual visitors the chance to learn about 1,300 animals in a way that’s exciting, interactive and fun. We also operate one of the world’s foremost breeding programs, helping to save some of our planet’s most threatened species from extinction. In addition to breeding, we are home to Florida’s premier manatee rescue and rehabilitation center, dedicated to the treatment and safe release of one of our state’s most famous resident animal species. Yet with all of this and so much more, we have one simple mission: to connect to the living earth for the protection of future generations of all species, including humans.
