Fun at Featherdale

On Wednesday a text message from my friend, Ed, meant that we had an impromptu trip to Featherdale Wildlife Park.  Ed's mom was visiting Sydney, and she wanted to see some kangaroos.  While Featherdale doesn't have the amazing views and diverse selection that Taronga has, it is very accessible.  It's flat, and there are opportunities to get up close to some of the animals.

Here's the obligatory "pet the koala" photo.

Not sure about that Emu

This emu wanted Ed's I-phone.

The kids looking at the peacock or is the peacock looking at them.  I wish he would have shown us his tail feathers, but no luck.

The kids had the opportunity to feed the pelicans, but they didn't want to touch the pilchards.

I love the Tawny Frogmouths.  You can stand there right next to them.

I might be having a visitor from Finland next year who will go home happy if she can pat a koala. Hopefully I can find somewhere like this to take her...
