Could we call kangaroos and wildlife a service? We would like to think so as they enhance the pleasure of your stay in our quiet part of the world. The valley is greening up from the delicious rain we have just had. A bit of follow up rain would be good. The kangaroos have joeys in their pouches, are lying in the sun and the birds are making a lot of noise, we are so lucky. Please drive carefully around the Hunter Valley, watch out for the wildlife.
