Australia Zoo

One comment

We had the best time at the Australia zoo. We loved it so much that we actually went 2 different days. The cool think about the Australia zoo is that it is a very interactive zoo. Steve Irwin was a big believer that the way you help animal preservation was to cause people to fall in love with the animal. He thought the best way to do that was to get them up close to the animals. We were able to pet kangaroos, koalas and an echidna. The animals were so close in all the exhibits and we got so many amazing photos.

They also have several personal encounter opportunities that you can purchase. We chose 2 different encounters. Since our main reason for going to Australia was to cuddle a Koala, we knew this encounter was a MUST DO. The koala we got to cuddle was names Rove. He was so precious. The animal keeper told us a lot of facts about koalas…Micah already knew most of them, but I think he even learned a few new things. The koala cuddle definitely made the top of my list for my favorite thing we did in Australia.

On our second day to the zoo, we chose to do a Giraffe and Zebra encounter. This encounter allowed us to feed and get a photo opportunity with a beautiful giraffe as well as a zebra. My giraffe loving kiddo sure did LOVE the chance to see her favorite animal up close.
