Halls Gap, Victoria, Australia.

Halls Gap is a picturesque small town nestled in the Grampians National Park, which features a breathtaking mountain range that rises sharply out of the flat land surrounding them in northern Victoria, Australia. Kangaroos, kookaburras and possums are frequent visitors to campsites and eating areas. Emus, kangaroos and other wildlife roam freely through the natural Australian bush.

While these little guys are in captivity, they are given a comfortable and safe environment that is as close to nature as can be achieved. They are usually rescue animals who cannot safely be returned to the wild. It does mean that they are safe from feral animals, natural predators and drivers who won’t slow down for them on the roads.
