Kangaroo Kountry was an exhibit of Australian animals at the Birmingham Zoo from 2008 to 2013. The exhibit featured a walkway through an area inhabited by southern hairy-nosed wombats Wilbur and Victoria, several red and grey kangaroos, wallabies, plus a variety of native Australian reptiles, birds, and amphibians. It is sponsored by the Birmingham Coca-Cola Bottling Company.

Kangaroo Kountry opened to the public on April 26, 2008, although zoo members were able to get a sneak peek starting April 24.

After closing, the exhibit was repurposed as Kori Kountry.
