After our visit to Richmond Gaol,
we headed over to Zoodoo Wildlife Park,
which is also in Richmond.
(I told you…for a little village, there’s stacks to do in Richmond.)
Now, Zoodoo isn’t a huge zoo.
It’s a privately owned attraction
and it’s a little rough around the edges,
but it’s got a lot of character
which we quite enjoyed.
Our favourite experience, by far, was the safari bus ride.
We got into an open-style bus,
armed with a cup of plant-based food,
and headed off for the back paddocks.
…where we met the emus!!
It was rather wild and chaotic
but hilariously funny.
Next, we stopped and visited the zebras
where we got to pat them.
Have you ever patted a zebra?
We can say we have.
Finally, we stopped and visited the camels.
We got up close and personal
with this camel.
You don’t realise how big they are
until they’ve got their face in your face.
This was such a cool experience!!
Leaving the camels, zebras and emus,
we headed back.
Isn’t the property just beautiful?!
The things you see in your photos AFTER you take the photo.
After the bus tour,
we were led to the lion enclosure
to feed a lion.
Yes, FEED a lion.
Armed with tongs,
people could line up
and hand feed a lion.
No, we weren’t lining up for that activity!!
We like our fingers.
Just being this close to a roaring hungry lion was enough to impress us.
There were plenty of other animals at Zoodoo
but the main reason for our visit to Zoodoo
was to see the Tasmanian Devils.
We love Tassie Devils.
These little critters have so much character.
How could you not love them.
Just look at this little face!!
While we only spent a little while at Zoodoo,
it was a fun few hours
that perfectly wrapped up our day in Richmond.
