Our Coat of Arms!

We met this curious little fella on a recent trip to Gumbuya Park out at Tynong. It was nice to be able to get up close. No matter how many times I see a kangaroo, I am always fascinated - especially when they go bounding off through the bush. They are beautiful creatures - a wonder of evolution and a National symbol of Australia!

We also saw a few Emus. Not so cuddly! Emus are strange creatures whose big feet seem to be disproportionate to the rest of their body! And they make weird, deep throat noises! Nevertheless, a bird native to our shores and on our National coat of arms!
