Kangaroo encounters

Written by Kyra, our Nature Warrior


This morning I headed down to the shed to start my daily routine of keeping our yards looking beautiful. I like to take a moment each morning to take a deep breath while looking over our back paddock to ground myself and appreciate the unique environment we have. This morning I was greeted by one of our Muni (Yugambeh word for kangaroo) , he was enjoying the fresh grass our back paddock offers. 

When I completed my yard work I went into the Wombats room and asked the children if they would like to come and see the Kangaroo in the paddock. The children were excited and quickly got their hats and headed for the door. We walked down to the bottom of the hill to find the Kangaroo lying down in the shade of the trees. All the wombat children sat down and watched the Kangaroo as he relaxed and scratched his belly. The children showed me how they could scratch their bellies too. I explained to the children that the Yugambeh name for Kangaroo is Muni. After a short while the Muni got up and hopped away. It was lovely to see the children excited by how quickly he could move. The children hopped and laughed as we came back up the hill. 

This is one of the many magical moments our children share with the Muni who visit our property. How lucky we are here at Kids World to have such a unique and beautiful environment.
