Healesville Sanctuary

Whatcha looking at? Huh, punk?

Last week I spent a day at Healesville Sanctuary. I hadn't been there in years and years. It really is a fantastic zoo. If you're ever around the Healesville area, it's worth checking out. I thought I'd share some pictures for overseas readers and locals, coz come on, our native Australian animals are pretty cute :)

The forever favourite kangaroo. It's a fantastic enclosure that you can walk through, and then a trampoline type thing to practice your own bouncing technique!

A pair of gang-gang cockatoos snuggling up to each other. So cute!

Pelicans. If you get a chance to see them at feeding time, it's a great thing to see.

The lands of Healesville Sanctuary are absolutely beautiful, surrounded by trees over hundreds of years old. This tree is over 150 years old.

Just before I was about to leave, I noticed these birds flitting about. One blue wren on the inside, one on the outside. It was gorgeous to watch, as the two tried to kiss between the bars.

A wonderful day :)
