Aussie Animals

So it’s my first trip down-under, and I’ve arrived in Brisbane, Australia…where there is plenty of sunshine!  Nearby are the stunning Gold & Sunshine Coasts which I plan to discover.  My first day trip though was to see some of the local wildlife, not at a zoo where they are behind bars, but at the world’s first and largest Koala Sanctuary – the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.  Here I got to get up close to a variety of animals, including: Kangaroos, Lorikeets, Koalas, Lizards, Snakes and Flying-Fox Bats.  Feeding the Lorikeets and Kangaroos has to be the most fun experiences!  Enjoy the photos (see the rest here)
