Caversham Wildlife Park

I was going to continue my series of back-posting from the Margaret River trip (you really should meet our little kangaroo friend from there!), but today we had so much fun I want to share straight away. My little aside there gave you a clue that Grandmary checked off her requisite see-kangaroo-in-Australia box, but she didn't feel her tourist boxes were complete. She lacked a good picture of a kangaroo warning road sign and she hadn't seen any koalas. She also felt something was missing in the kangaroo department without seeing a joey in the pouch, so we took care of all of those boxes today at the Caversham Wildlife Park. Lucky Ellie got to play hookie again so we could all go together. It was a beautiful day!

First stop: kangaroo enclosure. Watch that pouch...

Stephanie spotted a young joey bounding around and decided to join in the fun.

There was a school group in the park as well as a number of Japanese tourists, so we bypassed most of the park to beat them all to the koalas. It was sweet to see them so sleepy, and we were able to pet the two that were awake.

This is the most fun the girls had today. For them, kangaroos are old hat by now. Give them a $2 toy car ride any day.

It's all so exhausting.

But not too exhausting for somersaults.

I love koalas...that looks like an awesome place. I'm so glad that Grandmary is having a good visit with you all!

Grandmary had a wonderful time. It was an awesome place. To see mama kangaroos carrying a full pouch and then seeing the little joey poke his head out....too cute to really describe. My face is still sore from smiling so much.
