Australia Day 26th January 2005
Our kangaroo was very lucky and proud to meet the Kookaburras, or
rather three members of this brilliant Australian grass-hockey team that won the
medal in Athens at the Olympic games in 2004. He met them on Australia Day 2005
in Parramatta Park.
He gave them a Kookaburra Game each, and they loved it !
Here two photos of the event. Take a good look on the chest of our kangaroo: he
is wearing THE OLYMPIC GOLD GOLD MEDAL !!
