The koala sanctuary was great! I got my piccie taken cuddling a koala (tourist to-do list - tick.) I got some great photo opportunies - see below! And we enjoyed feeding the kangaroos who also enjoyed a bit of fuss!
We think we might spend another night in brisbane and spend tomorrow exploring the city and the river front
Here's a few interesting facts about oz and surrounding area:
1) A great white shark weighs the same as 112 suitcases. (hmmm my size cases or wyns? He bought just 8kg whilst i bought 30 something...)
2) You get a hefty on the spot fine if you get caught chewing gum in Singapore as it is illegal. (Harsh?!)
3) Australian kids officially get a raw deal when it comes to school uniform. (Yes this is undeniably fact and not opinion!) Much worse than they wear on neighbours or home and away. Think mens leather shoes (for girls) yellow ankle socks, checked skirts to about 4 inches below knee and a hat that looks like its missing a few corks... Yes australia is a wonderful place to live - unless you happen to be a fashion conscious teenager!
