School Excursion

Today, I went with Ella's class to Caversham Wildlife Park. It was a lovely spring day despite rain being forecast. The kids were all really well behaved (small groups of 3 made it easier) and we had plenty of time to wander around before stopping for a picnic lunch.

Here are (lots) of photos from our day!

Ella loved the name of this 'koala'
the start of the farm show
with a bit of a talk about farming in Australia
Introducing one of the 3 dogs - Bill
Bill follows commands and rounds up the sheep
onto the sheep shearing
and on to look around - first up a llama and donkey
Lots of goats lazing in the sun

very cute babies

Ella and her friend Jessica pat the babies

Ella thought this resembled Jonah! :)

fawn love the sun too

sounds asleep possum

Not sure what type of lizard this was

lots of different birds to look at

red foxes

koalas with their babies

Ella gets up close to a sleeping one- so cute!

some of Ella's classmates check out the wombat

and the snake

the kangaroos were a big hit - this is where we spent most of the time

the joey in the mothers pouch looks like its head is going to fall off

more lazing in the sun

this cheeky bird thought one of the mums biscuit looked rather tasty
