The Adorable Animals!
Concetta is creating a menagerie at TOORALOO!
An avid animal lover, she even brought a clan of 9 British Shorthair cats and 2 beloved dogs ( See The TAILS of DOT AND DASH!), with her when she cameback to her beloved homeland in 2015! Her mantra – “No Pet Left Behind”! You’ll meet them all about the gardens…
Tooraloo also hosts 7 pet Cows, 5 born to Mums ANNABELLE & DAISY who were rescued by Concetta when she purchased Tooraloo. She also has a hen house with 13 egg-laying and trouble-making chickens of various varieties, a New Zealand great white rabbit called BUNS, and last but by no means least, the Tooraloo Mascot CHOCCY, the mini horse with a savage underbite and a big love of watermelon:)
Tooraloo is also a haven for a myriad of natural wildlife with its 12 acres of beautiful parkland farm acreage. You will hear the Kookaburras laugh at dawn and dusk in the ancient fig trees, see a flocks of pink gallahs on the lawn, spy endangered pigeons, or befriend a frog mouthed owl when the moon is high who waiting for his moth dinner! There are also possums enjoying the mango trees and a myriad of other native fauna.
However, it is Australia after all and no Northern Rivers farm would be complete without the odd reptile – so keep your eyes peeled for the slitherin’ kind too!
OH -and to underscore her passion for pets, Concetta welcomes YOUR PET TO STAY FOR FREE!
So are we PET FRIENDLY ~ do Birds fly?
What’s next at the Tooraloo Zoo?
Well Concetta is eyeing goats, Jack Russell terriers, a piggy and her favorite ~ peacocks! (to name just a few:) )!
