Real life koalas

I can’t believe I haven’t posted since July… shocker.

Anyway, I thought I would post some photos of our trip to Featherdale Wildlife Park last week. I love Featherdale, in fact I have been there 4 times since January! Those poor animals probably think I’m stalking them.

The best thing about Featherdale is they have a LOT of koalas. You can get quite close and even stroke the ones that are on public duty.

So here are some cute cuddly koalas… the inspiration behind my brooches!

Below you can see Chloe, our favourite koala. When we arrived we went to her usual pen and were very worried when she wasn’t there. I asked a zookeeper, bracing myself for bad news… turns out she was in the maternity section! Chloe had a baby! I was so relieved.

She’s holding her baby but you can’t really see them. I don’t know the baby’s name but I may suggest to the wildlife centre they name it Tim Tam, after the classic Aussie biscuit.

Funny to think I hadn’t seen a koala in real life until I got to Australia!

Here’s me in my official koala photo. Sadly I don’t know the name of this koala as we weren’t formally introduced.

I’m sure we’ll back soon to check on Chloe and Tim Tam’s progress!
