Kangaroos in Colusa? Aussie Kingdom Brings the Outback to Life

Aussie KingdomAustralia is one of the most unique countries in the world, especially when it comes to wildlife! And a little corner of that world is coming to the Colusa County Fair. You’ll see kangaroos, wallabies, walleroos and other native Australian wildlife that you only hear and read about, but never dreamed you would be able to touch and hold. Aussie Kingdom offers the opportunity of a lifetime for those not fortunate to travel to the other side of the world, with three educational and entertaining stage shows a day and an interactive display and the opportunity to ask questions.

Out of an overwhelming interest in the pouched wonders of the animal world by fairgoers nationwide, Aussie Kingdom was created in 2007 and is home to mobs of joeys, boomers and flyers! Centrally located in Colorado, Founder and President Carolyn Lantz gives fairgoers the opportunity to connect with animals on a personal level. “We’re more likely to preserve and protect what we know,” Ms. Lantz says, speaking of her work with the creatures of Aussie Kingdom.

Australia is home to a total of 379 species of mammals of which 357 are indigenous to the continent. 159 of these mammals are marsupials, mammals where the females have pouches in which to rear their young. The most popular of the marsupials are the kangaroos, wallabies and walleroos. Ranging in size from 1 foot to over 6 feet tall, Aussie Kingdom features these remarkable creatures and other native Australian wildlife in an educational and entertaining program at fairs and festivals around the country.
