The trail started out from the Butterfly Tropics which was great for C but not so much for me. Little known fact: I dislike flying things – butterflies, birds and bugs. After capturing a few shots of daddy and the bub, I took off ahead, straight out of the enclosure. According to Mr. P, C apparently freaked out a little when a butterfly landed on her arm; too bad I was nowhere near to snap a photo 😦
We continued onto the Gumtree Valley and Wallaby Cliffs, where we caught napping koalas and hopping (?) wallabies:
Then it was off to The Outback for some kangaroo feeding session. Because C was too young, she wasn’t allowed into the enclosure but Mr. P made sure she was front and centre…
And finally we headed off for the main purpose of our visit – KOALAS!!! I didn’t know NSW has outlawed the carrying of Koalas (well it’s been 17 years since I last visited) so we had to be contented with mere petting (C stroked the Koala’s bottom!).
