Val and Pru recommended that we visit the Emu Holiday Park while we visited the Grampians. The park caters for holiday makers (like us), but more importantly, it is a rescue home for many local animals that have been injured or left orphaned by road accidents or attacks by cats dogs, foxes, etc.
Well, were we glad that we took their advice? Oh yes!
Not only did we stay in fantastic log cabins – with proper beds(!) and an en-suite bathroom(!!) – we were given the opportunity to feed two of the cutest joeys ever. Anna fed RB who was 12 months old, and I fed Tigger who was 11 months. Unfortunately Squatter, the 8 months old, had gone missing somewhere in the bush.
It was just brilliant.
Alan and Vicki do a fantastic job. It’s a real labour of love. All costs (at least $15,000 a year) are covered by donations.
