Feeding the Kangaroos
While i was feeding the kangaroos, i find that it was very fun but sometimes when i was feeding them, they fall asleep and sometimes when I fed them, they were eating and sleeping at the same time. I was thinking that how did they manage to eat and sleep at the same time. Let say if human beings, whenever people seen food is around, people would feel excitement of seeing the food is there and they will get some food to eat so people won’t feel tired and sleepy.
Kangaroos have 2 type of color. They are white and brown color kangaroos. While feeding the Kangaroos around, you will find some interesting things around such as kangaroos pregnant, having babies, feeding babies, cuddling each other, cuddling their kids while sleeping and other.
What I love the most in the Wildlife Park?
Apart from feeding the kangaroos, i love koalas as well. It is reasonable that Koalas are too chubby and I am in love their cute look 😂
How much is the cost of entry?
It will be cost AUD$30 per adult and AUD$23 per students. Students entry ticket is called concessions ticket. You will need to show your student ID upon your visit.
The cost is not that expensive, it is a reasonable price and it is worth to go for explore and discover the wildlife encounter.

Port Arthur is a place of national and international significance which is part of the epic story of forced migration and settlement of this country. Port Arthur Historic Site is located on a beautiful harbour at the southern tip of the Tasman Peninsula, almost 100 km south-east of Hobart.
Port Arthur was much more than a prison; it was a complete community, home to convicts, military and civilian officers and their families. The convicts worked at many industries producing goods and services for use locally and to be sold in Hobart and beyond. The military and civilian officers were tasked with security and administration of the settlement.
Before Europeans arrived in the region, the land, its natural resources and abundant waters were utilised by the Pydarerme people of the Paredarerme language group.
Containing more than 30 historic buildings, extensive ruins and beautiful grounds and gardens, the Site has many stories to explore.

Allow enough time to stop along the way and explore places like the Tesselated Pavement at Eaglehawk Neck, and dramatic geological features such as the Blowhole, Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen.
Free parking is provided; however, during peak periods our carpark does fill up quickly. We recommend you arrive early if you wish to secure a parking bay close to the entrance. There are dedicated spaces for caravans, motor homes and buses please look for the signs as you enter the site.
There is 2 options that you can get there with. They are either by tour buses or hire a car to drive down.
When I travel down to the Port Arthur, I went there by Tassie Tour operator. There is some tour buses going down there daily and you can book only. It costs $60 per person for both way with Tassie tour. In my person opinion, travel down with coach always the best, it is because while they drive down, they will drop-by some best attractions for the explore and view while on the way down to the Port Arthur which is pretty good.
If you want to know which coach will be the best, please do feel free to check this following site out. It’s help me a lot so this will help you too 🙂
