(You may want to read about Taronga Zoo first, but only because of a comment I make there about kangaroos. No biggie.)
On September 10th we visited Featherdale Wildlife Park in Doonside. In addition to typical enclosures, they have animals strolling around there, among the visitors. Even an emu! I don’t know how that’s not dangerous unless they’ve bred a non-kicking one…
I petted this wallaby who greeted us:
And boy were there wallabies.
We spotted a lot of baby wallabies.
And boy were there koalas, too.
I managed to snap a picture of some of the lively ones. This koala climbed down a tree and walked to the next one:
What really surprised me was that they had wombats. Outside. In the sun. I thought they were nocturnal animals!
Here’s an echidna:
And guess what? They had kangaroos! (Some of them may’ve been wallabies, I don’t know the difference.)
They had albinos too!
Of course, they had many many more animals (dingoes, bats, Tasmanian devils (couldn’t get a proper picture), reptiles, and lots of birds).
