We visited Maru on Saturday and what was supposed to be only a half an hour stop to have a quick look and something to eat turned in to a complete day of it!
We arrived at 12 and the staff indicated the koalas presentation area had just opened so we made our way down there, although the presentation had finished the staff still showed us around. The snake talk began not long after and it was very exciting seeing such a huge python. Snakes are not my cup of tea but the presentation was very interesting and i found myself far too intrigued on what the keeper was saying to run away!
After the snake presentation the keeper indicated that the next talk that would be happening would be a Koala feature presentation. We all agreed to stay and listen to this and boy oh boy were we glad we did.
The koala presentation at 1pm was without a doubt one of the best i have ever seen, i have seen many across my years but this one was great!! i learnt alot and it was very funny. Everyone that attended was involved in the keepers presentation and were hanging off everything she was saying and ofcourse Mr Koala was incredibly adorable. I felt very humbled with my experience at Maru Koala and Animal Park and how down to earth the staff are, they literally will go out of their way to help you but at the same time very knowledgeable and have a great passion for what they do.
Ill be coming back again soon, but bringing my entire family
