Aussie Bush Buddies

Wednesday, November 09, 2016

Have you ever been curious about how a python REALLY feels like to touch? Ever wanted to get up close and personal to a bearded dragon?

Have you ever wondered how big a squirrel glider really is?

Living in the city and suburbs we tend to over-look that these creatures live right in our very own backyard and we very rarely pay much attention to them or even know that much about them.

Mt Barney Lodge is now fortunate enough to have Louise McKay from Australian Bush Buddies bring her wildlife education and display to the Lodge during the school holidays as part of our school holiday program.

You will not only get an opportunity to touch some of these creatures, but you will also learn about the environment they live in and their quirky personalities.

Other creatures you may see and touch include native parrots, a baby crocodile, bandicoots, lizards and turtles.

Louise is a professionally trained wildlife education officer and is a former animal handler at Dreamworld!

Activity information:

When: See our program here to find out when her next show is on. No bookings necessary.

Cost: $10.00 per child and is payable to Louise on the day (Cash only). Parents are FREE!

Age: All welcome!

Louise and her husband Al live locally and take their wildlife display to schools, groups and corporate events.
