Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park is a wildlife sanctuary located in Calga, New South Wales, Australia about 1-hour drive from Sydney. The wildlife park is home to Australian native birds, mammals and reptiles as well as some farm animals (goats, pigs, ducks, chickens…). A great way to see a kangaroo, dingo, emu or koala up close.
