Salisbury Zoo unveils new Discover Australia exhibit

The Salisbury Zoo is getting ready to unveil its newest attraction Discover Australia with new birds and animals on Thursday, June 7. 

The ribbon cutting ceremony will include fun activities for kids and learning about the species inside the exhibit. 

Some of those species include Australian birds like the kookaburras, straw-necked ibis and more. 

Guests might also get a peak of the new baby wallaby. 

"This is our opportunity to really introduce the whole exhibit to the community," said the Salisbury Zoo Director, Ralph Piland.

"We've been working on this for a while now, finishing sections as we could using a lot of staff time and design capabilities," said Piland.

The zoo hopes to introduce more types of Austrailian birds over the next year, according to Piland.
