Crocodile Hunting

Sleeping for just 5 hours last night, and on a bus at that, means I think I shall leave writing about Fraser Island for when I’m feeling less tired and incomprehensible—but I did want to say something about today’s fun trip to Australia Zoo, home of the crazy “Crocodile Hunter”.

I’m not a fan of his TV-style, but the zoo was excellent, and I now feel I have seen a proper amount of Aussie fauna! I got to stroke cute koalas and kangeroos, a less-cute python and I saw tasmanian devils, kookaburras, wombats, more snakes and of course, crocs! There was also a couple of really excellent shows, particularly the free-flight birds which saw these beautiful birds flying from one side of the arena to the other, practically skimming the heads of the audience.
