Flying Whales


Did you know our whale family was expecting? The stunning life-sized sea mammals hanging in the Whale Mall are actually a pregnant cow, young calf and bull.

It’s a bird.. It’s a plane..



No it’s an Australian Pterosaurs skeleton! Peterosaurs were flying reptiles with a wingspan of 4 to 5 meters. Their membrane wing was supported by a single extraordinary long finger, hence the common name ‘pterodactyl’ meaning wing-finger.

Give me a home among the gum trees


The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is one of the most familiar native Australian mammals. Did you know to obtain enough food, an adult koala must eat more than half a kilogram of leaves every day?! They even have cheek pouches which store extra food until it can be chewed. View more incredible animals and their habitats at Wild State.
