We timed our arrival to catch the desert people story at 9am, but as we still hadn’t left our campground until 9:30am we were eager to see the “Birds of Prey” show at 10am, thankfully we made it and learnt a lot about the Spinifex pigeon, Magpie, Galah, Brown Falcon, Black Kite, and Zebra finchs. Our photos more than not ended up with a picture of the rock as we tried to catch the falcon or the kite grabbing its treat.
After that we headed to the nocturnal house where we could see all the night time activity that occurs in the desert, we saw Marlas, Spinifex hopping mouse, Bilby, snakes and Curlew, it was pretty awesome to see all these animals behaving like it was night and you could definetly catch agood look at them.
The rest of the day was spent going around the various exhibits, Marcella found the kangaroo’s impossible to leave alone especially when she saw a joey having milk from its mummy. For the next hour she pretended to be a joey and kept coming up to Rosalee for a drink.
The kids played in the sand pit whilst we waited to hear a section on Aboriginal hunting, which was very interesting and we got to handle a range of tools and weapons that the Aboriginals would have used to survive in this area.
It was a very educative and fun day.
