A Fiji girl at a koala and wildlife sanctuary
We had a charming morning visiting the Jirrahlinga Koala and Wildlife Sanctuary at Barwon Heads. Our little granddaughter was cautious at first but eventually patted a seven month old koala held by one of the caretakers. We saw sleeping koalas, no doubt zonked out by eucalyptus leaves, wallabies, one with a joey, snakes, goannas, and many colourful birds. The albino bird spread out the beautiful tail but dropped it when I was sketching. The wombats were mainly sleeping but she didn't fancy them much. A lovely morning with a four year old.
