|The coral reef we did not see in Cairns|
Saturday morning we went to Sydney Wildlife World, which was like a zoo, but with mostly animals from Australia. I was not expecting much, as we chose this zoo only because it was included on our 4 attractions pass and it had koalas. However it was actually really interesting and relaxed. Throughout our whole trip, I kept thinking it would be nice if there would be adult only attractions for things like zoos and aquariums. I would pay a little extra sometimes! Now I know they are made for kids, so I completely understand that there are kids and lots of them at places like the aquarium, but I want to see the coral reef too! Anyways, tangent over, we got to the zoo early enough that it was pretty quiet which made it a much more pleasant experience. There was a very interesting, rather nasty display of creepy crawlers. We also saw a gigantic crocodile, and some lazy kangaroos which were pretty neat, but by far my favourite was the koala bears! Ohh they were cute and so cuddly looking. I was rather proud as I had found a coupon to pet the koalas and get a picture with them for free ($15 value). Yes, I was a deal finder that day! I have always loved koalas, I think because I had a cute stuffed one when I was little from one of dad’s friends from Australia. After seeing them, I realized that could be a life list item for me, so I promptly added it and checked it right off.
