Newham Grange Country Farm map

Strewth! A popular farm visitor attraction in Middlesbrough has welcomed some new residents who hail from Down Under.

Three wallabies are now making themselves good neighbours with the rest of the animals at Newham Grange Country Farm in Coulby Newham.

The two female wallabies and one male are now based in an enclosure near the alpaca and llamas.

Wallabies are closely related to kangaroos but are smaller and the vast majority live in Australia.

Richard Buckley, from the farm based in Wykeham Way, said: “We were jumping for joy when the wallabies arrived.

“They are settling in well at the farm and I’m sure they will be very happy in their new surroundings.”

Summer Fun Day on August 17

Visitors have the perfect chance to see the new residents when the farm hosts its Summer Fun Day on Wednesday, August 17 from 9.30am to 4pm.

There will be lots of activities including bouncy castle, crafts activities and the barrel train.
