It had to be done!! Coming all the way to Australia, travelling up the East coast and not going to Australia Zoo would just be a sin!! Whether you would want to go in the memory of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin or to see the amazing range of Australian animals it is a must...
I caught a free transfer bus from Noosa to Beerwah on route watching a video about the becoming of Steve Irwin. It was interesting to find out that he caught his first croc at the age of 9, that his dad played a big part of the up and coming zoo, and how he meet his wife Teri. He then went on to explain that when he would go hunting he would take his best friend in the world, his dog Chillie. However, due to an unfortunate accident little Chillie died, you could see the sorrow in his eyes as he was explaining it. He then continued to comment that him and Chillie will hunt again one day!! Sniffle sniffle...that was enough to set me off!!!
Anyway once arriving to the zoo I was delighted to see the large spaces given to
each animal. And how happy and healthy they looked... (The dingo's looked like pedigree dogs with fox tails!) I went straight to the koala sancturary and got my photo with a little dude! I then went and saw the cute and chunky wombats. Followed on by kangaroos, crocs, tasmanian devils... etc...
I also had the oppurtunity to have my photo taken with a dressed up Steve Irwin and view his memorial.
I would like to dedicate this blog entry to Steve Irwin. For being known world wide for his courage and entertainment. For dying doing what he knew best, playing with danger!! May he now be reunited with his best friend Chillie to hunt the heavens for crocs!!! As Steve Irwin would say CROCS RULE!!!!!
