Amazement Park, Wyong Creek NSW


Recommended Posts

The person who has bought the business I work for also owns Amazement Park in Wyong Creek... I went up to get my bearings, and figure how long a drive it was going to be to commute... errr!

 

I was given free reign to wander wherever I liked (even staff only areas) and take photos of the animals... woohoo! I was good though, and tried to keep my photos to the perspective that a member of the public could/will see and be able to replicate... so if the new boss uses any for social media, the public will be able to get just as close to the animals as I did and get similar angles/shots. AND I only used my short lens! Got REAL close regardless...

 

There is also a bit of construction going on up there building new enclosures for a few more exotic species that I'll get to work with... woohoo! Totes exciting!

 

Anyways... here are some of the photos I got yesterday...

That's exciting.  How long is the commute - more than an hour each way?  Will both be open - "working two jobs"??  (I like the vicuna nose - so different to an alpaca).

1.5 hours each way on a weekend with little traffic... gonna allow at least 2 hours for weekdays... errr! 100km each way from my place.

 

The Dural site will be operational until after easter holidays, then all moving to Wyong Creek site...

 

Worth the commute to be able to work with the exotic species they have there IMHO...

How Excitement! ( plus you get audiobook-listening time ;) )  I love Crumpet-the-camel!! Looks as though you'll be a very bust lady ...what with the two places. Exotics will make it a bit more interesting :)

Oh, fabulous! I’m a little bit jealous, haha, let me know if there are any openings!

 

Those are some gorgeous face shots there. :love:

 

This is where Central Coast Zoo is going to be, isn’t it?

Keep an eye on their Facebook page @grizabella... the boss tends to advertise there... https://www.facebook.com/Central.Coast.Zoo ... and/or here https://www.facebook.com/amazement10

 

There will be primates... monkeys, not apes... but that could change - the boss is a very resourceful guy... lol!
