Seeing as the train takes just around 9 hours to get to Sydney from Benalla train station, I thought this would be a good time to update my blog and anyone who’s been reading it with what we have been upto for the last 3 weeks.
Over the last 3 weeks we have been lucky enough to have helped as volunteers at Kangaloola wildlife sanctuary run by Glenda Elliott and her husband Ron. Volunteers of all ages come and lend a hand learning from Glenda about how to look after the animals such as Kangaroos, Wallabees, Possums, Cockatoos and Wombats.
It’s hard work but very rewarding when you can spend time teaching a Joey to hop, feed Wombats from the bottle and try and not lose a finger to a Cockatoo!
Whilst there myself, Todd, Daniel (a 25 year old from Sicily who was a great laugh and good friend) and Ron, built a new aviary for 3 frog-mouth Owls to move into. It took around 4 days to complete and although it was hard work it was great to see it finished and the 3 Owls inside it!
