A few fresh faces have arrived at Wagga's zoo.
The two female swamp wallabies and the two breeding emus are now ready to be greeted after making the trip from the National Zoo and Aquarium in Canberra.
"We got the swamp wallabies first on Tuesday and then the emus came on Wednesday last week," said zoo curator Kieralee Tori.
"They're all settling in really well, it was a really smooth transition."
The emus are now 20 years old and are expected to live to 35 in captivity. Meanwhile, and the two swamp wallabies are now two years old.
"We'll have them for a long time," Ms Tori said.
The arrival of the emus, Ms Tori described as "exciting and nerve-wracking". They each came in a giant crate that had to be carefully forklifted into their new home.
Now settling into the new homes, Ms Tori said the newest attractions are already proving very popular with zoo-goers.
"[The public has] responded really well, a lot of excitement especially from the kids," she said.
"There have been a few nervous squeals with the emus but that's pretty standard."
Although the new animals are ready to meet Wagga, they are not yet answering to any specific names.
"The emus are going to be named by the public, the swamp wallabies are going to be named by us keepers," Ms Tori said.
Wagga City Council will soon begin running a competition to name the birds.
Ms Tori said the new species are hopefully not the last arrivals to be welcomed by the zoo, with "the hunt now on for a wombat".
"Next to the wombat pen, we have a blank canvas to whip up something, so we're tossing up ideas to see what we would like and also what the community would like to see here," she said.
