Kangaroos at last

Even though we kept a sharp lookout when driving through the countryside, we have been unable to see any kangaroos or other wildlife in the wild.  After a reminder from the Grand-kids that they want to see “real kangaroos – not just statues” we decided to visit the Caversham Wildlife Park.  It was so much fun, and we saw lots of different kinds of animals and birds.

And lovely soft kangaroos. These kangaroos were very tame and used to people.  We were aable to approach them and pet them, and offer them nibbles of kangaroo food.  They are so soft to touch and very gentle.  Some were white and some were tan coloured.

We also saw Koalas, colourful birds,
