So - what furry friends did we spy on our trip north you ask?
Our first wildlife encounter was this emu enclosed at a rest stop on the way to Uluru. I think she looks like a distant relation to Dr Octopus with her extravagant feathers and blue skin around the ears.
These galahs looked a little too well fed.
A Kingfisher in Simpsons Gap.
And a gorgeous Rock Wallaby that I wanted to take home to Brisbane. I think she would have gotten on famously with our chooks.
