Marriage Proposal at Healesville Sanctuary
Everyone loves a good marriage proposal and what better way to propose than with the help of some unique Australian marsupials!
This was the thinking of Larry who took his now fiancée, Irene, completely by surprise when he proposed during a Magic Moment with Kangaroos at Healesville Sanctuary on Easter Monday.
The couple were on holiday from Hong Kong and travelled to Healesville Sanctuary to get up close with some unique Australian wildlife.
Larry contacted the Sanctuary in March to organise proposing to Irene through a Kangaroo Magic Moment – something our staff were only too happy to facilitate.
The plan went off without a hitch and Irene excitedly agreed! Our Kangaroos loved being a part of it as well, looking longingly at the happy couple as Larry got down on one knee. To be fair, the Kangaroos were probably hoping for some extra food – but it makes for a fantastic photo and a beautiful memory for the newly-engaged couple to share. Congratulations!
