Steve Irwin Australia Zoo

Home of crocodile hunter!
You are probably asking why is this zoo so special, well I’m going to show you why it is amazing and by far the best zoo i have EVER been too! 
The Crocoseum
Everyday they put on a crocodile show. The keepers tell you facts about them and showed us the largest croc they had there. They also showed some other wildlife action and put on show for about an hour.
The Irwin family: Bindi, Robert and Terri.
Get right up and close to the Kangaroos. Hand feed and take lots selfies with them!
My favourite part of the day was these last two pictures. We finally got to hold a Kola!

You can hold a kola, crocodile or snake for i think it $25 but its so worth it! 
They put on so many shows, you get to see animals do tricks, we see a tiger climb up a tree it was brilliant. Like i said they have the crocoseum shows at 12 noon each day. 
Also you can pay extra to go into the penn with the animals, feed them, touch them, learn cool facts about them and get a picture with them.  
Ticket entry depends on where you book but i have put the link at the bottom for anyone going.
We had an amazing day at this zoo. We enjoyed every bit, from beginning to end! If you along the east coast you NEED to do this! BEST DAY EVER!

A few good days in Brisbane

We decided that we only wanted to stay in Brisbane a few days because we thought its only another city ticked off the list and we didn’t know what here is to do there, so we had 2 full days checking out the city and then one day going to Steve Irwins Australia Zoo.

Brisbane isn’t a bad city, its very clean. Like the streets are very clean, I’m pretty sure you could cook on them if you wanted too (maybe a little too far) AND there is free wifi in the city centre which is always handy for a backpacker.

When you cross the bridge to south bank, you eyes will be treated with a ….. beach, a man made beach and lagoon and a place of where dreams are made of! It is totally  weird, one way you look there's the city and you then the other way and you see a beach. You feel totally confused and slightly jealous that not every city has this thing. London invest! You can go on the wheel of Brisbane in south bank if you wanted too or the climb the story bridge. One thing i loved about south bank was that it had an outdoor theatre, with sofas and bean bags and right next to it was communal BBQ's, so whilst your watching a movie you could have a burger in your hand. It just had a nice atmosphere, there was twinkle lights in the trees and your over looking the city. Awwwwww! 

There is a herb garden, yes i will repeat that a herb garden in the middle of everything. Need a little mint for your mojito, go grab some!
They also had a botanical gardens there if you fancied a stroll through the woods.

I would only suggest going to Brisbane only a few days because 3 days was a good amount of time to have there. One good thing is you can be sitting in the city centre or sitting on a beach and you still in Brisbane.

If you are there you MUST go and see The lion king it is amazing! 

I think its one of those cities that your like mehhhh.
