Have you ever wanted to feed a Kangaroo?
What a wonderful activity with kids! Lived in Australia for a couple of years but never tried feeding kangaroos, maybe on our next visit 🙂
I would love to feed a kangaroo! Do they just hop around out in the open and come up to you??
I’ve always loved a good animal encounter when travelling, and this one sounds so great! I still remember my first visit to Australia when I got to “hang out” with some kangaroos 🙂
Amazing set up. Lots of animals. Beautiful park. Great crocodile carers, very brave guys… very friendly staff. Good value for the money.
This looks like a great day out – the kangaroos are so cute! I wish we had known about this before our visit to Melbourne last December. Will definitely remember it for next time!
I wish we would have done this when we went to Australia! It looks so fun! Thank you for sharing your experience, the video was fun to watch!
This sounds like a fun activity but I have seen Tiger feeding trips in Thailand and they look really sad. Hope this one is nothing similar.
