Meet Ivy. She is an orphaned Kangaroo Island joey who was rescued by the owner of the Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery. The distillery takes in these orphans and raises them until they’re old enough to be released back into the wild. If you visit on a day when the owner is in a good mood, you’ll be allowed to hold the joey, providing a rare chance to cuddle a kangaroo.
