I have just discovered that this complex ( Australia Wonderland ) has closed How long ago did this happen ? And does anyone know why ? Apparently part of this complex was also a wildlife park of native Australian wildlife . You probably all think that kangaroos and echidnas are fairly mundane , but these animals still hold a great fascination for me and other non Australian folk . Were any of the stock of rare species ? Were the animals released into the wild or were they given to other zoos ?
