Hunter Valley Zoo – Feeding Kangaroos

DSCN1010

Hunter Valley Zoo is such a unique zoo!!  It is privately owned and the owners sound like the nicest people ever.  The cost of entry is totally reasonable and a lot of the fun extra activities are free.  The owner believes that everyone should be able to experience the animals up close.  So cool!  You can even pat a wombat or koala at no cost!  We missed the wombat one but I did get to pat a koala!  Man, they are adorable!  Of course feeding the kangaroos was a total blast!  They even have a few albino kangaroos!  I was really surprised how soft these little guys were!  Of course, it was instant love for the little Joey in its mom’s pouch (photo above).

I also really love how open the animal enclosures are.  You feel like you’re right up next to all the creatures.  You can even get decently close to the alligators!  I could have stayed here all day but we needed to get to the wine tasting portion of our road trip.

For a fun day experiencing Australian Wildlife up close and personal, definitely head to the Hunter Valley Zoo!
