One of the popular animal attractions with both domestic and international visitors are the kangaroos. At the desert park you can get up close with the kangaroos in the enclosures, although you are requested to not touch or disturb the roos.

Following images (by various photographers) are of the Red Kangaroos (Osphranter rufus) at the walk-in enclosure of the Alice Springs Desert Park:
