I held a Koala! They are so heavy and apparently they bite which is always good to know. So gorgeous And also a baby crocodile, blue tonged lizard and a python which took a bit of a liking to me - don't ask - just call me Dr Doolittle...
Went to Magnetic Island on the Ferry from Townsville & stayed on the Island for two nights at the 'party central' hostel where the bar closed at 10pm - not sure what the quiet ones are like! Anyway so after an early night we hired a moke to drive around the island which is kind of like a cross between a jeep and a go-cart - needless to say I didn't drive! The four of us spent a fab and very entertaining day driving around the island trying not to fall out round the hairpin bends - according to the wildlife/tour man mokes are the most dangerous thing on the island. It's ok we're still alive and Charlotte still hasn't been eaten by a snake, spider, crocodile or koala - I think she's convinced Australian wildlife is out to get her! Very funny.
