Galahs waiting to perform at the Crocoseum Show, Australian Zoo. Tip: To avoid being a laughing stock pronounce Galah with the emphasis on the last syllable.
This update is overdue as my three little loves were on their school holidays and I also had family visiting from England giving me a grand total of four adults and six kids, aged from two to ten, to entertain. And that includes me. Phew!
A thoroughly enjoyable time was had by all but I had to take a week off after the rellies left and my kids went back to school to recover from all the excitement and readjust back into my old friendless and beerless existence.
So, here’s a quick run down of kid friendly stuff to do during a two week holiday on the Sunshine Coast or in the Noosa area. This is the list of things I thought we should do that I emailed my brother, to which he added drinking beer and having a barbecue. Good on him – an Australian holiday would not be complete without beer and barbies.
Anyway, here’s my list and a picture from our trip of Australia Zoo. Can you guess what I’ll be writing about next time?
