The windows really open the space up; makes it more inviting, and the view more exciting. Of course, it would be even more exciting if we could see some kangaroos... or even llamaroos. ;)

The exterior area around Aussie Station is starting to take shape with some details being added.



The right side has some outside walk-up service counters for coffee and sweets

Here is the kangaroo habitat areas



This exhibit in the current real zoo is very wooded and filled with high weeds and plants, which I never thought was very realistic for how these animals live in real life, which is more open plains and dry desert-like areas. So I made this habitat a bit more open, which area of shade scattered around.

More of the Roo enclosure. I have since made the interior fence (on the left) invisible.

Mighty fine lookin' roo you have there. The faces do look rather roo-ish. The creek looks very realistic, especially the bank. What is that stacked yellow and green thing? Scratching post? Feeder?

There are two mirror image shelters towards the back of the exhibit (hidden behind rock work) where the roos can go to feed, sleep and get out of bad weather. The doors can be closed when winter arrives. Keepers also have access through the buildings.

Okay, so I wasn't going to ask what that square of rocks is, in the first pic; but my curiosity got the best of me. Is it a sand/dust bath for the roos? A helicopter pad for vacationing roos? A teleporter, so the roos can teleport to other enclosures? A roo cemetery plot? A sandbox for little roos to play in?... I think that covers all the bases.

This is a very realistic creation and I love the meticulousness that you have with it. You are considering every angle and small detail as if this was being built in the real world, which is only adding to how amazing this zoo is. Well done as usual!

Now for the rest of the Australia area. I was really hoping for an Aussie DLC to come out before I got this far just so that I could use actual animals in game, but for now, I will just make habitats as they are on the Master plan...with a few minor modifications.

The black box will be the outside walls of the Australia House. It will house the inside quarters for a few animals as well as a full habitat for some that will have no outside access.
The pathing will go around and through the house as well reach out to some of the more satellite structures.

The green area will be the wallaby's. They will have a larger outside area as well as an interior shelter and keeper access. There will be no inside viewing of these animals.
The white lines along the paths inside the house will be glass viewing walls for those outside enclosures.
Yellow is the wombat habitat, which will have outside and indoor viewing...and there will also be a inside backstage area for the keepers and animals.
Orange are the echidna, which will also have in and out viewing areas.
The purple box will be the fruit bats which will have an open air enclosure with fine netting.
The 2 red boxes will be two aviaries. One will be general birds, the other will be for the lorikeet,a small colorful parakeet-like bird.
The two blue areas will be keeper huts and backstage structures.

If an eventual DLC has a different mix of animals I will switch this up a bit. I'm thinking emu's and koala's may need to either be added or replace something I have here in the plan.

These areas look like they will be fun to build, and fun to look at. :)

Once the building exterior was mapped out the habitats also get more finalized.
Red is the planned wallaby interior and exterior
Blue is the planned fruit bats
Green is the planned echidna
Orange the wombats
the pink line is the pathways and viewing areas inside the building
