Wings Wildlife Park

Today we took some family members to the park for their Christmas present. It was good fun. We saw a lot of animals.

Kangaroos & Wallabies

Teddy Bears
or better known as a
Koala Bear.
This one was just getting comfortable to go to sleep.

Mostly they were sleeping too but this one was just on his way to bed after some fruit for lunch.

Little horses that followed you up & down the fence line.

There were also other Australian animals like Tassie Devils, pademelons, quolls, a large variety of birds including horrid pecky emus. The pretty black cockatoo scared the heck out of us when he slamed itself right in front of us on the cage & gave its awful screech. It made Margaret & I jump, not to mention BJ that I was holding at the time. His lip dropped & then followed the howl for a good 5 mintues. Can't blame him really. We had to be careful of being too close to anything that could make sudden movements or make rotten noises. Like the goose!

There were also a lot of other animals, like the miniature horses, monkeys, goats, cows, sheep, pigs, camels, bison, Highland Cows (so cute!), buffalo, ostriches, geese, ducks, chooks, & other boring bird varieties! lol There was such a lot to see. We had a good wander around the animal enclosures first & then our very yummy picnic, thanks to the January 2010 Woolworths Good Taste magazine that had a picnic feature in it. We had 4 of the recipes included & they were all brilliant if I do say so myself! I was going to get pics of those but everyone ate the food too fast to take pictures.

So check out Wings Wildlife Park if you come to the area as it is worth a look for big & little folk!

If we could talk to the animals, just imagine it
Chatting to a chimp in chimpanzee
Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting to a cheetah
What a neat achievement that would be.

Looks like you had an amazing time - cockatoos can be awfully scary. Gotta say that I'm not a big fan of them or geese. Still koalas and wombats are adorable.
