and Kanyana Wildlife Park

and I eat for charity
Kanyana Wildlife Park

Saturday afternoon I spent a great 3 hours with friends enjoying a picnic dinner at the Hainault Winery in the Bickley Valley east of Perth. It was a charity event to raise money for the Kanyana Wildlife Sanctuary. The event was $15 entry donation and it came with a fantastic view and some great live music. We also met a Burrowing Bettong (Boodie) and an echidna. I had never heard of a Burrowing Bettong before.

Burrowing Bettong 

It was curled up in its cage and looked so sweet. Think of it as a burrowing mini kangaroo. Apparently they now only exist on islands off of the coast. They used to live on the mainland but nineteenth century settlers decided to kill as many of they could believing the were garden pests. 


One of the singers

The view from the winery cafe was gorgeous and we sat their as the sun set listening to two fantastic singers. We decided to make our own picnic dinner instead of buying a platter. I think I am going to keep an ear out for other little charity gatherings. I heard about this one from a friend who was told about it by a college who went last year. They also held a raffle but no one on our table managed to win a thing. I think it was a cute fundraising idea and wish it was better publicised so more people could have enjoyed such a fantastic evening.

Our home made platter. 

Platter tip! Serve Quince paste when ever your have Brie or Camembert Cheese. I love Maggie Beer's Quince paste.

Until next time.

Love, love Elle.
