It is almost winter, so when we found out what a nice day it was going to be today, we decided to go to Gorge wildlife park at Cudlee Creek. It is about a half hour drive from our house. We got there at 10.30a.m. so it wasn't too busy. We hadn't been there for a lot of years but it has really improved. As soon as we walked in we saw some really bright yellow birds. Then we saw many other birds, don't ask me to name them unless it is some thing simple like a Pelican. We then found the Koala enclosure. They are so gorgeous! Andrew then saw an owl sitting in the corner of one of the enclosures. So cute. Lots and lots of Wallabies. Then there was some Penguins and not too far away, 2 American Alligators were sunning themselves. We saw 2 Lace Monitor Lizards and then went into a small enclosure where there was goats, and Alpaca, sheep, rabbits, a deer, ducks & guinea pigs.
There was also a rather large pig there which Andrew reached over to scratch and the pig rolled on its back to get its tummy rubbed. Then there was the Turkey! One of the goats got out and of course had to try to climb on something to reach the higher leaves of the tree. Then there was monkeys, the monkeys are so cute. Canada Goose as well. Meerkat, dingo and wombat. Even a Leopard! Lots more things, I could go on for ever. One of the reasons that we went to the park was to hold a Koala. Andrew had never held one and I hadn't for years. So we held a Koala. They are beautiful. We spent at least 3 hours at the park and loved it. It was getting a bit cool outside so we decided to move on.
