What I did
Bungalow Bay Koala Sanctuary
We also went to Bungalow Bay Koala Sanctuary while we were here which was great! We had a guide that took us round telling us interesting facts about all the animals and we got to hold a crocodile! Just a little baby one it felt quite cool as its belly was really soft and smooth. Also a blue-tongued lizard which was pretty ugly with a massive bright blue tongue (you'd never have guessed!) and a python!
But the best bit was obviously the koala. He was called Squirt and I wanted to take him hime with me! Very cute and incredibly sweet just lazing about on his branch and then swiping to get some leaves. I got to hold him too and he was suprisingly heavy but sooooo soft and cuddly (although apparently they will bite/claw at you if you try and get too friendly) so he just sat there in my arms, contentedly chewing a tasty eucaluptus leaf.
A nice suprise when we left and were wandering in the bush a little we spotted a wild koala up a tree!! Jump hanging about, sat on a branch clinging to the trunk. I wish we had them at home!
