Feed and interact with Kangaroos
and Wallabies all day long!
Tick off meeting a kangaroo from your Aussie bucket list within our interactive kangaroo and wallaby habitat.
Set on over one and a half acres of manicured grassland, this is one of few places in Sydney where you can hand feed some of Australia’s most iconic animal species.
Open from 9.30 am daily, you are invited to laze amongst the grass, enjoy the sun, and interact with our mob.
To further enhance your experience, animal feed bags can be purchased upon entry to enable you to hand feed our mob.

Can I bring my own food to feed the kangaroos and wallabies?
We have species-specific, scientifically researched, and veterinary-approved nutritional programs for all of our animals, and our dedicated zookeepers provide all of the extra nutritional requirements our macropods require each day.
We thank you for not bringing any of your own food to feed our animals, and in doing so helping to assist our zookeepers to maintain the overall nutritional health and wellbeing of our animals.
What’s the difference between kangaroos and wallabies?
At Symbio you can meet eastern grey kangaroos, swamp wallabies, and red-necked wallabies.
Although kangaroos and wallabies are both marsupials belonging to the same group of animals called Macropods, the main physical differences which can help you distinguish our kangaroos apart from our wallabies during your visit with us are their size, shape, and colour.
Size: Although there are many different species of both wallabies and kangaroos that span a wide range of sizes, the most striking distinction between the two animals is their size, with kangaroos being much larger than wallabies as a general rule.
Body shape: Kangaroos have a larger amount of height between their knees and ankles, making their legs seem disproportionately sized for their body. Their legs are built to speedily carry them across large open terrains. Wallabies, however, have compact legs, built for agility when moving across forest floors or rocky escarpments.
Colour: Kangaroos are likely to have a uniform coat of a muted colour, such as brown or grey, whereas wallabies are likely to have brighter colouration, with two or three colours on their coat.
