Australia Building Now Closed

Posted September 2017

As planning and construction moves forward on the Zoo’s new Elephant Exhibit, the Zoo’s Australia building is now closed to visitors. As part of the expansion, the building will eventually be re-purposed to house a variety of other species.

Most all of the animals have been relocated to AZA-accredited institutions, or other facilities vetted by the Milwaukee County Zoo’s Senior Animal Staff.

We thank visitors for their patronage of the Australia building and its residents, and invite you to support us as we continue to grow!
