Feeding Kangaroos in Australia – #Snapshot Story 6

posted in: Australia, Wildlife | 4

If you have been to Australia, you will know one of the must do Australian wildlife experiences here is feeding kangaroos. Almost every Australian zoo or wildlife sanctuary has the option to buy bags of kangaroo pellets. It’s almost a rite of passage for your visit to Australia.

Being Australian ourselves, I couldn’t even estimate the amount of times we’ve been somewhere feeding kangaroos in Australia. It happens at least a couple of times a year easily. But we do love our wildlife encounters so visiting anywhere with animals is high on our list of favourite things to do.

The photo above was taken at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary in Tasmania, not too far outside of Hobart. It’s somewhere well worth visiting, but not flooded with tourists like so many zoos or more tourist based animal sanctuaries. Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary isn’t a zoo. It’s a reserve for injured Tasmanian wildlife, but also features all the usual aussie favourites.

Our favourite place to go for feeding kangaroos close to home is Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. A special place for me as I did my high school work experience there and had a blast feeding all the animals.

The picture above was at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for Simon’s birthday last year. Even Lily had a go feeding kangaroos. She thought it was great!

Is feeding kangaroos on your bucket list? Or have you already done it?

What is Snapshot Story Sunday?

Every travel snapshot has a story to tell and sometimes those stories get lost until you flip back through a photo album or digital folder full of your travel snapshots. Or worse… lost forever because you simply never shared them!

Each week we will share a favourite travel photo that has a great story to tell. It may be about a really awesome travel moment we had, a unique experience, or something funny. And you are invited to do the same.

  1. Believe it or not, I have never fed kangaroos! Been to see them at the zoo and of course in the wild while camping but not at an animal sanctuary. The things us Aussies take for granted 🙂

    • That’s pretty crazy lol I have an advantage. I grew up with a kangaroo orphan so I was probably sharing my rusks with him before I could walk haha my family are total suburban dwellers these days though. Long gone are the cool critters of living on a farm.

  2. I love to watch Kangaroos. In Perth near where I live there is a large reserve where every morning and most sunsets you can see a large family of Kangaroos. It’s so beautiful to see them in the wild. I have only hand feed some while visiting a rehabilitation centre for injured animals. Thank you so much for selecting my plane image for this weeks feature. How exciting!! I love this link up, keep up the great work 🙂

    • It’s always the best feeling seeing animals in the wild. There’s an area near Brisbane where the prison precinct is, of all things. There are kangaroos everywhere in the surrounding area. Such a contrast to the razor wire fences. I have had a long career as a prison psychologist & always loved visiting those centres just for the kangaroos lol
