  Even chatting wallabies leave a lot of poo.
by Kakapo2

I do not want to miss to give you a very useful tip when you visit the Wallaby Park (EnkleDooVery Korna) in Waimate:

Even in splendid sunshine you should wear sturdy shoes!

As you might imagine 65 wallabies can leave a LOT of poo in the enclosures, and you will walk right through it, and it is much softer than those practical sheep pellets... ;-)

At the exit is a big brush to clean the shoes but you still should wash them afterwards. I cannot imagine it very pleasant to step into those rather soft droppings in sandals or fabric shoes. I still had my hiking boots on from a previous walk and was very happy ;-)
