Photos speak louder than words at Australia Zoo, home to the celebrity cult of the Irwin family, and numerous wild animals. Father Steve (deceased 2006), aka Crocodile Hunter, built up the zoo he took over from his father.
His apparently maniacal widow, Terri, holds the reins now, and it's 'one helluva ride', with son and daughter in tow.
The Zoo provides an exciting and educational day out for families and cynics alike, "crikey".
We saw koalas, which had evaded us on our antipodean adventure so far, Tasmanian devils, which had remained hidden. Plus a whole host of other creatures with which we now had a greater level of familarity: enormous saltwater crocodiles, plus freshwater cousins; kangaroos that we could feed; wallabies; imported komodo dragons and alligators and hundreds of birds whose names we cannot entirely recall.
Have a happy Christmas checking out the photos!
