Starting next week, Busch Gardens Tampa will be offering a new animal interaction program, featuring kangaroos, wallabies and a kookaburra. Walkabout Way opens June 14. At scheduled times during the day, and for an additional $5 fee, visitors can buy a cup of food to feed one of the exhibit's kangaroos. (Participants must be age 5 or older.)Tweet

The new Australian-themed area is a bit of a geographic stretch for the predominately African-themed park. (But, hey, folks love kangaroos. Well, at least folks who aren't living on am Australian ranch overrun with them....) Busch Gardens' Walkabout Way will include the kangaroo and wallaby exhibit, called Kangaloom, as well as an aviary called The Kookaburra's Nest and Aussie Station, which will feature encounters with some of the park's animal ambassadors. Walkabout Way is a new extension of the park's Bird Gardens area.
