We have a guest from the UK staying with us at the moment and on Wednesday a week ago we took her to Australia Zoo (only about an hour north of us). It was the first time I have ever been there (sad but true).
My daughter’s friend from high school works at Australia Zoo (dream job and totally in line with her ‘Zoology’ university studies) and was one of the presenters in the show at the Crocoseum. She also met us after the show and had arranged for us to have a ‘private experience’ with Mack the Koala. Basically she brought Mack out for us each to have a nice long cuddle with. Mack was incredibly snuggly! I’m pretty sure he and I have bonded for life. I so easily could have snuck him home with me!
Anyway it was a fabulous day! Here’s a tip for you: if you go to Australia Zoo make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes. It is huge and there is a lot of walking to be done!
Here are some photo’s of some of the animals and birds encountered on the day.
Which animal pictured above would be your favourite? Have you been to Australia Zoo?
Ciao for now,
