Would we fake a picture with Steve?
Aboriginal Dancers - Steve Irwin - Dreamworld
What on Earth do these things have in common?
Sure, they can all be found in Australia, but the thing they really have in common is Fun, Fun, Fun!
We definitely had fun on our last week in Australia. The last night we were in Cairns we went to The Tjapukai Aboriginal Dinner Show. The buffet dinner was excellent but the real fun started when the dancers took the stage. The mixture of thought-provoking storytelling dances with humorous songs and skits were brilliant. We even got a lesson on how to play an aboriginal musical instrument called the didgeridoo.

Our last few days in Australia were spent around Brisbane. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see the Australian Zoo. As Steve Irwin might say “CRIKEY” it is a “GORGEOUS” place. We didn’t get to see Steve in person but his enthusiastic personality and energy were everywhere we went. The new tiger temple is beautiful. We fed the elephants and the kangaroos. The best word we can think of to describe our time at “Steve’s Zoo” is fun!

By now you may be asking, “So what is a Dreamworld?” Dreamworld is Australia’s answer to Universal Studios! If you love thrill rides this is the place for you! A number of Australians told us to make the time to go to Dreamworld and we’re glad we did. (Thanks Rochelle) You could say, we ended our trip to Australia on a high note…an over 300ft. high note in fact. We rode the GIANT DROP, which, according to the Guiness Book of World Records, happens to be the tallest free standing fall ride in the world. It’s the height of a 39 story building. We can now officially report that none of the Bond family has a fear of heights!
It is a ride like no other! At the risk of sounding redundant Dreamworld was …fun!
