Australian Adventures: Wildlife Sanctuary

This is the second post in a series where I share photos from the two months that my husband and I spent in Australia this summer. One of the highlights of the summer was visiting a wildlife rescue sanctuary in South Australia. My mother-in-law arranged for us to go for a visit because she knows that I've been obsessed with kangaroos since my first trip to Australia two summers ago.

When we arrived, I was just super-excited to see a kangaroo up close. I've seen a few tame-ish ones in the wild before, but these kangaroos would actually let us touch them since they've spent almost their entire lives in captivity.


Then, the lady who runs the sanctuary asked if any of us would like to bottle feed a kangaroo. Of course!

Here's the kangaroo I had the privilege of feeding. Isn't this face adorable?!?

Next, we got to meet some baby wombats. They were super adorable as they ran everywhere.  

Of course, when I tried to take a picture of one of the wombats, it proceeded to do this:

I thought when the wombat went to Shaun that I would finally be able to get a good photo. Nope!

I finally got a good picture when my mother-in-law picked one of the wombats up, though.

As we walked through the sanctuary, we got a chance to see some birds that had been rescued.

After walking past the birds, we reached the part of the sanctuary that held the older kangaroos.

We were given food to feed the kangaroos. You will never guess what we fed them. Make a guess before you scroll any farther!

Made your guess yet?

Almonds! I never would have guessed in a million years that a kangaroo would eat an almond out of my hand!

These kangaroos are just so cute. I can't stop adding pictures!

Here's a video of one of the kangaroos:

I've still got more pictures to share of other adventures from our summer in Australia, but those will have to wait for another day!
