Weekend Vacation Part 4: Billabong Wildlife Park

From the coast we drove inland through the backroads to the town of Wauchope where they were beginning their Lassiandra Festival. (Lassiandras are a shrub with beautiful purple flowers.) Sadly I did not seem to get any photographs from this; it wasn't quite exciting since we were visiting on a weekday and the main festivities wouldn't really begin until the weekend. But it was nice to see the town all out; lots of street vendours and dressed in purple!

From there we intended to drive into Port Macquarie and visit the Koala Hospital there, instead we ended up at the Billabong Koala and Wildlife Park, which is known for their Koala breeding program.

It was very nice for a quiet little Wildlife Park. Mostly native animals, as one would expect. Lots of interactive opportunities and really beautiful landscaping (I really should have got more photos of that!)

(I love it when wallabies sit like this, although they always look so dour. "Oh, woe is me. Not as many tourists mean I don't get fed as much corn kernels.")

(I did my best to try and cheer them up.)

And of course: Koalas.
