White Kangaroo Wildlife Park

The famous Bordertown Wildlife Park was developed in 1968 and is situated just near the turn-off from the Dukes Highway at the eastern entrance of the town.

In the park are Western Grey Kangaroos and Dama Wallabies as well as a variety of birdlife. The park is famous though for its mob of White Kangaroos that are a genetic strain of the Western Grey (they are not albinos).

In 1980 a big White Kangaroo was captured on a property near the South Australian / New South Wales border and bought to the park. He went on to become the founding father of the White Kangaroo mob. The first white joey was born in 1984, followed by a second two years later. From there the breeding program has taken off with around 50 being bred at the park over the years. A number have been sent to parks and reserves around the country, and today you can currently see around 10 in the Bordertown Park.

Visitors are able to drive or walk right around the 4.5 hectare park and its inhabitants are all quite easily observed through the fence.

Please note entrance to the park is not permitted and as the animals’ diet is monitored, feeding is also not allowed.
