Yep I'm going with a full on Aussie feel today, since I'm doing something out of the ordinary and sharing some pics of my weekend. Also, I might be slightly biased with my opinion on the best country, but you have to admit it's pretty darn awesome!
How could I not be when I spent some time with this little fella.
Then a walk across the street you have to put up with these types of scenes.
The sun was out but the wind was a little chilly to actually go down to the beach.
So instead we went to a wildlife sanctuary owned by friends of their family, Jirrahlinga.
There we saw a few of the natives.
A dingo - Which didn't take a baby, although with a kid that looked like this I considered testing the theory.
This cheeky guy who was putting on quite the show for us. We were actually inside the enclosure, they were not fussed at all by the kids being in there.
This little guy has just been introduced the the koala family, he was orphaned. Sadly for him, the family so far have rejected him. So he was all on his own curled up in the tree.
The park is home to a koala hospital, and does not receive government support. All entrance fees and donations go towards upkeep and care for the animals. Last year the hospital they were using was burnt due to an electrical fault. Devastating the staff and taking the lives of 6 koalas.
The owners Tehree and Hamish, were recently awarded the Pride of Australia medal, for the lifetime they have spent caring for our wildlife. They played a huge role after the Black Saturday fires, working around the clock to assist injured wildlife.
It really is a beautiful place, so if your in Victoria and headed down the coast anywhere near Barwon Heads, go check it out. For more info you can go here
I'll be sharing some more pics later in the week. Hope you enjoyed a little slice of Australia.
I know this one did!
