Gav & Sarah's Travels
Well we left Mildura n arrived in Sydney 18 hours later :o( we stayed there for one night before rapidly moving on to a place called Port Macquarie the next day-it was another long bus trip, it took 8 hours!!!last really long trip for a while though! we arrived in the night so the next day we started our sight seeing!we hired bikes, yes bikes hahaha, for free from our hostel n we went out for a long bike ride along the beach path!then after spending some time recovering we rode to a koala hospital (awwwwww) its a proper hospital for koalas where they do operations n stuff!we had a lil tour around all their pens n the guide talked about wot was wrong with all of them-was quite sad!!!they all had cute lil names n stuff n they've even got 2 graves there from 'special' koalas that had died!! n we learnt a very knowledgable fact ....... koalas got their name from the aboridiginals-it means little drink....cos they dont drink much!!!! and we learnt that they are born with black teeth n they turn white over time-thats how they can tell how old a koala is!!! see bet you never thpught this sight was gonna be educational,hhahahaha. then we rode our one geared bikes back 2 the hostel......it was all up ridiculously steep hills so we actually didnt ride home we just took our bike for a walk! We left the next day...Port Macquarie is a nice lil place, its quiet n not much to do but it was nice to go there n see cos its a pretty place!!!
