As a wind-down Artrage organised an all expenses paid weekend away to Donnelly River.
Donnelly is south of Perth, around three hours away. It's very close to Bridgetown, where I stayed on a farm with Merissa previously.
Around 35 people went, but only a few people that I have actually met before. Only two people who I worked with went.
The accomodation is around 30 houses. The area used to be used for logging.
There are no pets allowed, but that's understandable. All of the wildlife are so close. I also bought emu/kangaroo food at the general store so I could hand feed them.
Here is my Fringe co-worker Sophie looking at a lazy kangaroo from out kitchen window.
Nom nom nom. I fed Emus and Kangaroos. I saw a rabbit and a possum.
The animals are wild, but they get used to the tourists after a while. The emus were very gentle with taking food. Wild kangaroos can be dangerous, but these guys were very used to people. They wanted the food more than us patting them! :)
This is the swimming dam. Yes, I totally went for a swim! Although the bottom was slimy and I was scared of leeches.
