Australia & New Guinea




Take a "walkabout" to Australia and New Guinea without leaving Idaho Falls. Walk right into the exhibit where red-necked wallabies frolic with emus, swans, and shelducks.

Don’t miss the graphics discussing the structures recreated for your enjoyment including spirit poles by a local artist, whirly shelters, and a billabong. And if seeing is not believing, let the unique sounds of the New Guinea singing dogs or the laughing kookaburras convince you.
