    Spring break camp is great — because the kids will be among the first to see the new Koala Walkabout exhibit. The new Australian habitat opens on March 10. In addition to two cuddly koalas, there is a new interactive lorikeet feeding aviary where you can buy a cup of nectar for $1 to feed the lorikeets. Don’t miss the new kookaburras (brother & sister) next to the kangaroos/emus/wallabies. If you can’t do the camp, come by one day for a visit. Take the DART Red Line and make it a full-day adventure and avoid the traffic and parking fees.
