There is something special about seeing a mob of ‘roos bounding over the dry grass, especially at sunset. We’ve been to Australia a couple of times and were lucky to see many kangaroos in the wild. In fact, the wildlife was one of the main reasons we wanted to head “down under” and it didn’t disappoint!
One very special moment we had was at one of the hotels we stayed at in Noosa. I got up early on a foggy morning to take a walk and get some photos. I turned around and there was a small kangaroo. It came right at me, which was a little disconcerting at first. I didn’t know if it was dangerous or not. After living in Alaska I don’t take the “wild” part of wildlife lightly.
This little girl was not dangerous. She decided to come on the walk with me. She was content just to follow me around and lean up on me for a pat, just like a dog! I couldn’t believe it. We meandered back to my hotel room where I introduced her to my daughters.
Have you been to Australia? Have you had any special encounters with the wildlife?
