Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is one of our favourite places to take international VIPs. It’s close to Hobart and a reliably good place to feed a kangaroo. You’re given a paper bag filled with pellets upon payment of your entry fee, and the kangaroo paddock is chock-a-block full of Skippy’s mates.

The kangaroos are completely unperturbed by humans taking selfies. If they’re hungry, they’ll approach a hand held open proffering food. And they don’t mind a gentle tickle on the chest. So that’s our pearl of wisdom for today. What’s yours?
