My Summer vacation has gone by so quickly, as vacations often do. One of the many things we did was to take a drive up north to see kangaroos in Israel at Gan-Garoo, an Australian Park … in Israel.
The drive was pretty scenic, and I captured part of the drive with my camera along the way.
Gan-Garoo was apparently developed in conjunction with an Australian team that requires the park to meet various specifications to best accommodate the kangaroos in Israel.
It’s a really nice park, all in all. We booked online, and walked around through some of the initial sections before heading to the main enclosure.
The kangaroo enclosure has a number of kangaroos. I hadn’t actually seen kangaroos in person (we didn’t see kangaroos when we visited Australia last year). There are a couple rules about interacting with them, and they were pretty placid.
My wife and son fed the kangaroos from a feeder that exchanged pellets for some coins. It was pretty hot, so many of the kangaroos were resting in the shade, or sleeping in peculiar positions.
We also went for a walk through a short maze that explored some dinosaur species, complete with animatronic dinosaurs.
We were hoping to walk across to natural springs for a picnic lunch, but confused where we were supposed to go. We decided to take a half hour drive a little further north to the Kinneret, another popular spot that I hadn’t visited yet.
It was really hot, and we didn’t have shade, so we had a pretty quick picnic lunch, and made our way home.
