Too much happened in Healsville to fit on one page! Koalas, wallabies, awesome birds & even more kangaroos; how the heck do you even try to jumble all that awesomeness on one page?! It’s just not possible! (Page two HERE)
The four of us headed to the Healsville Sancutary to see a whole lot of awesome in just a few hours. We were on a mission & our main mission was koalas. Photo brochures make it look like you can have a “magical moment” & pet these cute furry creatures. Don’t be fooled. You can’t! There a VERY few places that will let you do so, & this is not one of them.
Out of disappointment we almost turned around to drive an hour back without seeing anything; thank goodness we didn’t!
We saw birds swoop & soar in front of our eyes. We spotted lyre birds (still want to hear one). We walked through exhibits of cute nocturnal animals. We saw platypuses swim too quickly to take any photos. We jumped around like kangaroos & then saw some kangaroos. We finally came across some wallabies. Spotted afraidy echidna roam by & dingoes sleeping in their den. AND we saw some cute koalas!
My goodness those creatures look so cuddly & lazy. They are definitely a cute sight to see (& one they fear may not be around to see much longer).
PS This also marks the first photo of us with Cassie & Steve altogether. How do you live, take tons of pictures around each other, & forget a group shot for a month straight? We have no idea!
