SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - The next time you can't find the energy to take a 16 hour flight to Australia, consider visiting Walkabout Australia - a new four acre animal habitat designed by one of Australia's own. 

In Tuesday's Zevely Zone, Jeff went to the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park to be a kangaroo keeper for the day. 

Walkabout Australia cost more than $17 million to build and it opens to the public on Friday. 

Some of the footage in this video story was shot using a GoPro camera.
