Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

The other day we went to see koalas and kangaroos in the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. It was amazing, just perfect for small kids (and me!). Why I say it is good for smaller kids is that the area is relatively small so a toddler can walk around, you don’t even need a pram and you can still see all the animals. They had all the Australian wildlife, there were cassowaries, dingos, platypus, kangaroos, koalas, crocodiles, snakes…

 It was wonderful. You can also pat koalas and kangaroos which my little toddler loved!

If you look at very carefully the kangaroo mummy on the right (in the picture above) you can see she has a huge baby kangaroo in the pouch..you can see the long legs and the tail sticking out from the pouch…what a lazy baby still in the pouch..

I am a bit funny. I have this crazy adoration of kangaroos, I absolutely love them.

Everyone was taking kangaroo selfies…including me..my mum said we look the same..I did not take that as a compliment..haha.

Some people think kangaroos are just big rats but I have loved them ever since I have seen them in wild for the first time. Sometimes I am even considering to start wildlife caring and taking care of kangaroo babies who have lost their mummies. They are super cute. Well, one day..maybe..

Our daughter enjoyed Lone Pine so much. Feeding this little kangaroo baby was her favourite moment.

Our daughter loves animals like I guess every toddler does and to be able to see tens of kangaroos around her on the grass was a unique experience.

Today we will go to see more wildlife to a different sanctuary. Cannot wait!

PS. Sorry about the quality of photos here..one thing in OZ is that the internet is slow..super slow..it is an old fashioned ADSL in most of the places and I just cannot upload the amazing photos I have taken with my new digital SLR, it would take forever. I will upload better photos when we get hold on to the better internet connection…I have taken amazing shots and enjoyed using my new camera and the lenses.

Hope you have a relaxing Sunday!
