Gan - Garoo - Australian Park

 One of a kind in Israel and in fact unique worldwide.

Only here, or in far-off Australia, can you enjoy the special and exciting experience of walking amid a pack of free-roaming kangaroos, Where you can pet and even hand-feed them.

Gan Garoo features a grand assortment of  australian animals including , kangaroos of various types, and a Lorikeet parrot aviary where you can feed the birds fruit skewers. 
Among the animals you will encounter are the Australian Cassowary, emu, small reptiles…

In February 2018, Milo, the last kuala in Israel, passed away at a ripe old age. For more than six years, the Gan Guru team has been trying to bring in additional koalas from zoos in Australia. But is currently unsuccessful. The intention is to import Koala only as part of conservation programs and in coordination with the Australian authorities and therefore the task is lengthening.

 At the souvenir store you will find souvenirs that are unique to Australian wildlife
and Aboriginal culture as well as soft drinks, snacks, ice cream and coffee.
