I visited these grounds back in 2014 and can only apologise for any part I played in promoting of the feeding and interaction of the kangaroos at this location.
At the time, my website was a personal diary but I am now aware this blog post gets viewed by tourists looking to visit the Morisset grounds.
So after nearly a month in Australia adventuring through Cairns, the great barrier reef, the Whitsundays, Fraser Island & Byron Bay we had finally arrived at Sydney. A massive check point on my bucket list.
Another 2 biggies on my bucket list were to see Koalas & Kangaroos.
Although I had met the Koalas at Hartley’s Crocodile Farm, the Kangaroos were still nowhere to be seen.
Basically, I refused to go home to the UK without seeing a Kangaroo and luckily our friend Adele felt the exact same.
Adele had heard of this place an hour and a half drive out of Sydney where the wild kangaroos hang out.
For ages people have been visiting the kangaroos here and so they are pretty friendly and used to the company (food).
We went to a viewing spot right outside the hospital in Morisset.
If you’d like to make a day out of it I believe there is a National park nearby where you can sit by Lake Macquarie with a picnic and the Kangaroos are no strangers there either.
I will note though – the kangaroos are still wild and can be dangerous if, for example, you rile them up or do something silly like chase / throw things / mess around with them.
(Not that you would, but needed to state it’s not a monitored activity).
Saying that, it is SO beautiful and freeing to see them & feed them in the wild.
I had an amazing experience and will treasure these photos forever!
