Telling Tales

Jayne Maddern 35-50

Bordertown Wildlife Park was developed in 1968 and is located near the turn-off from the Dukes Highway at the Eastern entrance of town.
In the Park are Western Grey Kangaroos and Dama wallabies. It is most famous for its mob of White Kangaroos that are a genetic strain of the Western Grey (they are not albinos).
There are also several birds, ducks and peacocks in the enclosure. Often we receive visits or phone calls from visitors at the Visitor Information Centre concerned about the peacocks. The males often fly over the fence and can be seen near the Dukes Highway and all the highway traffic!
We reassure visitors that the peacocks fly in and out of the enclosure all the time! 
