Australia Zoo

Leaving Matt and Tash's for our next port of call, Brisbane, our route took us past Steve Irwins Australia Zoo - one of the must stop places on our to do list...we weren't disappointed!

As it was school holidays we had the "priveledge" of catching Bindi (Steve's daughter) taking part in the main show - she's something of a celebrity out here with her own DVD's, TV show, clothing line and magazine. Terry, Steve's wife, also ran the main croc show which was pretty good - the croc wasn't that bothered about performing however and after a few pretty amazing feats decided she'd had enough and made her own way back to her pen...hell who was gonna argue with it.

Steve's presence is still everywhere at the park; videos, massive pictures, statues, t-shirts, you name it...the work he'd put in to expand and develop the zoo which had orignially been his parents was amazing and his death certainly hasn't slowed any expansion plans with two rhinos arriving in the near future.

Here are just a few of the 100 odd photo's of the various widelife we managed to get up close to.
