I had never been before, so before we journeyed out into the hills of Melbourne I did a bit of research about the zoo. For extra bucks you can have a unique zoo experience to suit your every desire (I know it sounds like I'm selling the zoo here, but this post is not sponsored, I just think it's cool!). You could spend the big dollars and have a close encounter with a platypus (my favourite animal) or for small dollars ($10) you could have a 'magic moment' with the fur creature of your choice.
My heart pounded as I read the options. I could hang with a kangaroo, get up close with a koala, Or. OR touch two baby wombats. Sold.
Before I could have my magic moment, we had to find the wombats. Naturally, we got distracted by Crap Man. The Zooper Hero encouraging us all to wipe for wildlife with recycled toilet paper.
It's hard to debate the decision when you're faced with this:
"Well, hello. I'm adorable"
And during this magic moment, I succumbed and pet the baby wombats, c'mon! Wouldn't you? Tummy scratches? Yes please.
Can you even stand it?
Of course, the cuteness didn't stop ... Meet the adorable koala.
And one more adorable koala.
Two of my favourite things...cute animals and this guy!
What did you get up to over the weekend?
