Zeb and Eider Duck Sleep at Western Flora Caravan and Tourist Park

Zeb, Eider and the humans rented a car and we are driving north from Perth in Western Australia.   We stayed a night at Western Flora Caravan and Tourist Park.

A caravan park is for campers, but they had cabins, or chalets for us.   We stayed in Melaleuca Chalet.

We were a little early for the wildflowers, but they were beginning to bloom.

The people that own and run the park, Ron and Sandra Webb, were very friendly and very nice to us.   In the morning, they brought us a continental breakfast.   The walk round the lake, after breakfast, was great.

We saw many birds.   These pink and gray galah are one of mom’s favorite wild birds.

but Ron and Sandra Webb even have an observation place for humans to sit and watch for kangaroos and other wildlife.

There are no fences here, so all the wildlife is wild and can leave whenever they want.   However, several kangaroo stay around the park most of theme.   Isn’t this great?

She used to leave more often and come back with a new baby, or a joey.   Ron and Sandra Webb said she doesn’t leave much now, but she can if she wants to.   Honey is very friendly.   She likes us,too.
