Australia Part 3: Wildlife

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Click for Part 1: Sydney and Part 2: Gold Coast

Here's the final part to my Australia trip :) (I didn't want to bombard all of you with so many images & text so I've split it up in three posts.)

I possibly couldn't visit Australia and NOT see the wildlife so we visited the Currumbin sanctuary and an aquarium [Underwater World] during our time there.

Below are the colorful Lorikeet, and super cute koalas.

Wombats and crocodiles..

...and kangaroos!
Other animals we saw were eels, pelicans, stork, echidnas, dingos, Tasmanian devils, parrots, iguanas, ducks, emu, eagles, turkey, etc.

We also saw a few shows in between like the Didgeridoo show (which is basically an Aboriginal instrument), a snake show, free flight bird show, and Aboriginal dancing.
At Underwater world, we saw a bunch of colorful fish and we even watched a seal show.

My favorite were the Asian sea otters - sooo adorable!
We also saw stingray, sharks, turtles, lobster, crab, etc.

Additionally, we went to a show called the Outback Spectacular; it was basically a performance + dinner. Horses did tons of tricks, featuring some cows, dogs, pigs, and of course cowboys & cowgirls. It was an enjoyable show - the music was great, but the steak they served was so hard to cut through. Everyone in the audience had a hard time sawing through it lol.

Overall, I had an amazing time in Australia. Everyone is refreshingly super sweet and friendly, and the weather was perfect. Of course, I did include some shopping and eating out during my trip. I bought mostly basics - cardigans, summer dresses, a lace top, and a few pairs of earrings. We ate out at buffets, cafes, and small restaurants - definitely had fish and chips! By the way, they have this thing called chicken salt which they put on fries to give it more flavor, and it's delicious! Too bad it's not done here in America.

Follow Audrey Allure.

HAHAHA! I'm in love with the photos that you have over here! I love koalas! I "saw" one in the LA Zoo but they're always far away from the public that you have to really look for them! And sea lions are so adorable!!! I want one.

I love our aussie animals! They are so adorable. Haha and it's so interesting that what is normal here (chicken salt) they don't actually have overseas! Chicken salt is a must for chips :)

Hi Audrey,

I loved seeing your photographs and glad that you had a great time.
We went to the Currumbin Wildlife Park -isn't it fabulous seeing all the animals and birds.
Our son had a photo taken holding a huge bird on his gloved hand.

Happy week
Hugs
