MEET THE MOB

Featured here, are all the kangaroos and wallabies who have been in care with us, since we started in November 2016, as well as all the joeys born to them. We still see many of them on a regular basis, particularly the eastern grey kangaroos, many of whom return to the house at dusk to feed, get water or take shelter. They also come back if injured or sick. It takes many hours to clean up after them each morning, apparently the grass closest to the house is the tastiest.
