You can never have too many baby koalas. We've been having a delightful mini break on the Sunshine Coast. The good thing about holidaying with the under twelves are there are many enforced bits of jollity playing in the waves, playing wounded soldiers (a variant on catching a ball which was unknown to me), eating salted caramel popcorn ice cream and going paddle boarding.
Of course, the highlight of their activities was the visit to Australia zoo, the shrine to Steve Irwin. It exceeded my expectations with beautiful gardens and an emphasis on conservation. We also picked up tips on dating safe around crocs. Basically, stay out of the water and zig don't zag. There was also an abundance of koalas including babies. The squee factor was high allowing the cult of Steve to be overlooked.
My own kid and I also went to visit the Big Pineapple. Dreams do come true.
