Things we've done -- Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

I'm casting my mind back a bit, because the blogging only got going a little after I arrived!

As the kids were so keen to see Australian animals, we took them to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, which is about 30 minutes or so from our house, soon after we arrived. It is apparently in the Guiness Book of Records as the world's first and largest koala sanctuary and has been visited by a couple of famous people including the Queen Elizabeth II and the Pope.

Parking for the famous people!

It was a wonderful day. We got to feed kangaroos, saw lots of koalas, as well as wombats, dingoes, snakes and birds. It was great to get so close up to the Australian animals that we've previously just seen in books.
