I am a mum who is learning how to use my camera. I post on Instagram janes_photo_gallery. Having so much fun.

I visited Cleland Wildlife Park on the long weekend. There were lots of overseas visitors and many keepers were hosting walking tours. Visitors were invited to hold Arthur the Koala. Recently one of our favourites passed away - Steven the Koala.

How adorable is he

All the keepers are so helpful, so make sure you say hello. They have maps in different languages, and it is only a 25 minute drive from town. So if you have visitors coming, it's a must. You can set up a picnic table have a BBQ and don't forget the keeper talks.

Not only do they do koala holding, but reptiles as well. I have not done one yet but will soon.

But what an experience; you will enjoy a few hours walking around feeding the animals and for photographers, it is a dream.
