Dromaius novaehollandiae


The emu is the world’s second largest bird and can run up to 50km/hour. They feed on leaves, grasses, seeds, insects and fruit. The female lays six to 12 dark green eggs each year. The male then incubates them and raises the chicks. Emus are found in most habitats throughout mainland Australia. However, they are no longer found in closely settled areas.

 Lone Pine is home to three friendly emus. You can see them up close in our Kangaroo Reserve.
