My family and I spent last Saturday afternoon in Lysterfield Park, located in the suburb of Lysterfield, south-east of Melbourne. The weather was perfect, it was so sunny and warm and there were many people by the lake enjoying their day off work. Lysterfield Park is great because it’s totally free to visit and if you’re lucky enough to spot them you can see real kangaroos in the wild! These symbols of Australia are so beautiful, so intelligent and very fast at jumping through the trees. They are certainly hard to find as they camouflage beautifully against the similarly coloured vegetation and bark. However, once you spot them you’re rewarded with some excellent up-close-and-personal photographs of these amazing creatures. At one point we were standing only a few metres away from a beautiful mother Kangaroo and her baby Joey, who was peeking out of her pouch! A breathtaking moment and one that makes me truly grateful to be back in my home country, the land “down under”.
