Western Grey & White Kangaroos • Macropus fuliginosus
Bordertown Wildlife Park

The first white Western Grey Kangaroo, a buck, was introduced to the Wildlife Park in 1980 from ‘Warrokoo’, a property on the New South Wales border, adjoining Chowilla. The first white joey was born in 1984, followed by a second two years later.

The dominance of the white gene has been clearly evident and by August 2000, 43 white kangaroos had been bred in the park. These ‘white roos’ are a dominant genetic strain of the Western Grey and ‘are not albino’, as thought by many first time visitors. With the success of the ongoing breeding program, a number have been sent to other parks and reserves around Australia.

Visitors are able to drive or walk around the outside of the 4.5 hectare park, as all the inhabitants can be viewed through the fence, however there is currently no access into the park itself.
