We were all pretty enamored with those cute koalas...enough so that we paid for a photo package which included three photos, where one person was allowed to hold a koala in each photo. We let the older three kids be the "holders" -- here are the resulting pics:
Not sure why Steve and I look so tan in these pics. We aren't tan. At all. :) The kids LOVED holding that cute koala...fun memory for each of them!
We took a little train ride to the other side of the park:
We saw dingoes (wild Australian dogs). It was sort of sad to see them fenced in...they didn't seem very happy...but, it was still interesting to see and learn more about them.
We thoroughly enjoyed watching an Aboriginal dance demonstration. I am having trouble uploading the video footage, but we posed with the performers afterward for this photo:
Everyone agrees that one of the best activities of the day was getting to interact with the kangaroos!
Awesome day, wonderful vacation!
