Left Kate & Kyles for Brissy via the Zoo
Dec 11, 2008
|We finally dragged ourselves out of the most comfortable beds we've slept in for a while to the smell of bacon and eggs being cooked for us by Kate!!
I thought it was a dream at first!!!
So after a lubbily breckfast and a wicked night sleep we finally had to bite the bullet and leave Maroochydore and Kate 'n' Kyle behind :(
We would have absolutely loved to have stayed for longer but we are running a bit short on time and unfortunately have to get a shift on.
They are in Sydney around Crimbo time visiting their family so hopefully we can hook up with them again somewhere down there.
Steve Irwins Australia Zoo was only about 20 minutes from Maroochydore was today was the day that we finally got to see some crocs and roos!!!!
The zoo itslef was amazing, it was massive but didn't seem to big which was cool. The staff and trainers were also really friendly and fun, and the animals themselves seemed perfectly happy. It all seemed very genuine and natural and there were lots of hands on encounters. It was completely refreshing after some of our experiences in Asia.
We pretty much spent the whole day there and watched the croc show, saw some crocs (obviously!) roos, tigers, snakes, birds of prey, elephants, wombats, tazmanian devil, dingos, and even got to hold (cuddle in Em's case!) a Koala.
Just check out the photo's!!!
We left around 5pm for our 2 hour journey down to Brisbane.
The hostel was really well set up (except for the fact they didn't have any parking spaces left so we had a bit of a mission trying to find one a few streets away!) but other than that it was cool.
There was also a bit of a party thing in the hostel bar/club that night so after a long but amazing day we celebrated with a few drinks.........and then a few more!!!
