We were pleasantly surprised by this stop. While we imagined just another mini zoo this turned out a little nicer. The Koalas were mostly asleep

but the kangaroos were in an enclosure that allowed us to interact with them. They sell cups of cracked corn to feed them and they really do enjoy it. I was able to get many photos of kangaroos close up including one where one of the Roos helped himself to my cup of corn. They allowed us to pet them and hold their paws. Obviously, they have lots of interaction with people so it was very enjoyable.

There were other animals that you could get close to but the kangaroos were the best.

We also picked a good time to come since we nearly had the park to ourselves.
