Salisbury's zoo planning major makeover

Hidden behind the brush in a cordoned off wing of Salisbury Zoological Park, three curious wallabies bounce through their temporary home, bounding away from the prying eyes that come to check on them.

In the new animal medical center behind them, kookaburras flit together in their quarantine unit, waiting to make their debut.

The creatures from Down Under are set to inhabit the zoo’s latest exhibit, Discover Australia, within the next 6-12 months, along with other types of native birds to fill two planned aviaries. The creation of this new habitat will help usher in a new experience that will focus on creating zones and trails that give visitors a more immersive, interactive experience.

I've got an idea, relocate the entire zoo and open up that dam to fill that area back in.

Salisbury Zoo could be really awesome, I feel like they are not living up to their potential.

I am happy to see they are getting some new animals. Hubby and I love to go walk around the zoo. We have a very nice zoo in Salisbury, it is close to us and never crowded. People need to be proud of our zoo instead of being negative. Not all cities or towns have a zoo, let alone one that is nice like ours!
