We enjoyed a full day at the Cairns Tropical Zoo just north of us. We receive the local rate for admissions now, saves a few dollars that's for sure. We went to all the program sessions and learnt so much! That included two on snakes, one on marsupials (koalas & wombats), a show on free flight birds,a demonstration on deadly crocodiles, and one on tamarin monkeys. We now know how to treat snake bites, how to avoid being crocodile prey, and that pelicans can hold 15L of water in their bills. We all touched a python and fed the wallabies and kangaroos!!! We had our photo with either a koala, boa constrictor or a small crocodile. Wait till you see the pictures. We also saw a variety of birds and reptiles, as well as red pandas, dingoes, ring-tailed lemurs, emus, cassowaries and pelicans. A definite must to take visitors to when they come.

Then to top off our day, on our way home we also saw mobs of wild kangaroos in the fields grazing...a WOW day all around for sure!!
