Kangaroo Invasion

Australia, Lost Girls RTW Adventure, Wildlife & Animals — By on June 16, 2007 at 8:51 pm

After living in the concrete jungle of New York City, the girls and I have encoutered wild life ranging from rats to cockroaches to drunken men. So when we heard that the hazy Blue Mountains (just 90 minutes outside of Sydney) were home to critters of a different kind-kangaroos-we hopped in the van and hit highway N4 in search of the furry marsupials. Not knowing where to find ‘roos on our own, we were lucky enough to have a local firefighter named Adam, whom I’d met on the plane to Sydney, offer to be our tour guide.

Here’s a clip of our adventure. It’s not exactly “Animal Planet,” but we were stoked to get close enough to reach out and touch creatures we’d only ever before seen in National Geographic. Who knows? Maybe we’ll even spot a koala on our roadtrip through Oz.

    Seeing kangaroos in Australia is truly getting to the heart of the country. These native ‘roos appeared to be playful and interested in your activities. Thanks for the footage. Real life down under…:-)
