Koalas, Kangaroos and Wallabies – oh my!

Waking up to wildlife at my doorstep is something I’ll never tire of and certainly don’t take for granted. It doesn’t happen every day, and I can’t set my watch by their appearances, you see the thing about wild life is that it’s…..wild.... and therefore, totally unpredictable.
























Lately, we have been graced with the presence of many native animals foraging on the grounds at Diamondvale. Living in the bush means we are potentially surrounded by wild critters; kangaroos, echidnas, wallabies, koalas, kookaburras, even an elusive platypus. Despite this abundance of fauna at our fingertips, we can’t predict when or where they will appear.


This week we seem to have been inundated with visits from the local animals, much to the delight of our guests. Alison, who harks from the UK, was besotted with the roos as they grazed close to her accommodation. You see, it is one thing to see them at a wildlife park, but when they choose to drop in, totally of their own accord, it’s something quite special indeed.

Spring has a way of luring all of the animals out of hiding. This week the koalas have been putting on a show for anyone who cared to watch. For such cute little critters they sure make some horrific sounds. Growling, squealing and fighting in the tree tops has been a bit of a spectator sport this week with guests being amazed at how agile and vocal these creatures are. For animals that spend most of their life curled up sleeping in the top of a gum tree, we have certainly been treated to some pretty special scenes.

Whilst we can’t guarantee an up close and personal wildlife experience, if you want to have the chance to encounter some Australian wildlife in their native habitat, come and stay for the night - you’ll never know what you might experience.
