Walkabout Way at Busch Gardens

Walkabout Way is a wonderful animal encounter attraction at Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida where you can feed and pet kangaroos and wallabies.

The experience is similar to that of a petting zoo, except instead of your typical farm animals, you’ll be surrounded by eastern grey kangaroos, red kangaroos and wallabies.

Kangaroo and wallaby feed can be purchased for an additional fee, though you’re welcome to come in to pet and interact with the animals even if you don’t purchase food.

Feeding guidelines and instructions are clearly posted around the exhibit.

Human Interaction

The animals at Walkabout Way are very accustomed to humans and many enjoy being scratched between their arms.

Walkabout Way is one of several exhibits featuring animals from Australia so as you are getting acquainted with the friendly kangaroos, you’ll probably hear the sounds of cockatoos, kookaburras and black swans in the distance.

The best time to visit Walkabout Way is around dusk as this is when the animals are at their most active.

Knowledgable Staff

Ask the staff on hand about times when joeys (baby kangaroos) are bottle fed or if you have any questions about any of the animals.

They will be happy to educate you on kangaroo facts, behavior and activities.

Throughout the day several other animals make stops at Walkabout Way including an umbrella cockatoo, tawny frogmouth and a skink.

Regardless of when you visit, Walkabout Way is a fun and interactive animal encounter that is suitable for the whole family.
