Hope everyone is well. We are all fine and having an amazing time! We have done so much already since our new recruit has come out! We have moved on from Cairns rather quickly because of the poor weather up there. So we set aboard our first OZ experience bus and headed to Magnetic island, just off the coast of Townsville.
On the way we went to a Croc farm, where we saw and met not just any crocodiles but massive great big huge crocodiles! Very Scary. We watched them feed and also watched the wranglers get very up close and personal. In the Croc farm we had the opportunity to hold a baby crocodile, snakes, lizards and birds. Which was really great…but talk about chuck holly in at the deep end. We were also able to feed the Roo's which was really nice and a first for us all.
After the Croc farm we arrived at Magnetic island after a 9 hour travel day…which saw us all exhausted! So we rested up…chatted….and had a few drinks and headed off to bed.
Yesterday we hired a baby topless jeep and headed off to explore Magnetic island. We were told that this was a good island to look for Koalas in the wild so off we headed. We were really lucky as we saw one…but so many others had spent all day looking but not seen any.
After that we headed to a Koala Sanctuary and Holly and Me cuddled and Koala. It was amazing! So brill. We also held the croc and all others again. We also feed the Lorikeets which was fun but their claws were razor sharp!
Today we are just chillin on the beach. Our Hotel here Is really nice…and just on the beach. When we open our door room you have an amazing shock every time of just how beautiful it is!
Tomorrow we are off to Airlie beach where we are on Sunday boarding the sailing boat for the Whitsunday islands! So should be fun. It is here that we get to snorkel the great barrier reef! So really looking forward to that!
Hope all is well at home….we both miss you lots!
Love Kirst and Lee
p.s Can't wait till Dean and Charlotte join the party!
