For the last four years, pretty much since my first son was born, we’ve visited Cleland Wildlife Park every Saturday morning.
Whilst it’s been for the benefit our boys to (1) tire them out for a good night’s sleep that night so my wife and I can have a peaceful evening, plus (2) to show them Australian wildlife up front and personal. Oh, there’s fences for the Tasmanian Devil, the Dingos, and the DropBears (Koalas), but the Ducks, Potoroos, Wallabies and Kangaroos can be patted easily. Just beware the Emu!
I’ve taken my camera along nearly every time to catch the more ferocious animals in action or asleep.
Unfortunately tomorrow will be our last visit for quite some time. (My regular flat-white coffee will be gotten at Chocol’Art in Kingscote from hereon.)
At least I will have these memories to show our kids how much fun we had together…
… and that we go again later this year! If not, we will be going to the many National Parks on Kangaroo Island as time permits. Watch out for more videos of me and my boys with wild animals around Australia!
