    Mogo Zoo was awesome.

    April 12, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    It was so hard to choose only 6 photos! There were lots of unusual and endangered or just cute animals at Mogo Zoo yesterday.

    Ruby couldn't choose a favourite but she loved feeding the giraffes and deer. We both did. The giraffe's tongue was huge! It was rough and hurt our hands a little bit. Such a cool experience! Sam's favourite was the moustache monkey (Emperor Tamarin)- they looked a bit like the Lorax, small, cute but pretty fierce when they were wrestling each other! Mum and Dad liked the binturong, an animal we'd never seen before. It's a bear cat that climbs, swims and eats fruit. The most amazing thing is that it does a wee to mark its territory and the stuff smells like popcorn! We could smell popcorn around the enclosure. Weird!

    And we always love meerkats... The lookout ones are so alert and quick, and at Mogo Zoo the young ones were wrestling and playing dead!
    Then... Back on the road towards Canberra!

    Malua Bay is beautiful.

    April 10, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    We counted down the hours and minutes until we arrived in Malua Bay where mum's Aunty Poggy and Uncle Garry live. We had some funny times with the GPS robot lady in Dad's phone who tried to tell us some very silly directions. We got here anyway!

    Malua Bay is a quiet little beach town. We found a great playground at the beach and went in the waves even though it was super windy. Poggy and Garry have chickens and hilarious kittens. It's been a really relaxing visit here. We will have more pictures to post tomorrow, especially of the kittens... They are sleeping now!Read more

    Cheese!

    April 10, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Leaving Eden we knew we'd miss waking up to the amazing bellbirds. They echoed everywhere even though they are so tiny. It's clever that you can't tell where their chiming sound is coming from.

    We saw a lot of cows and green fields as we drove north. Of course we went to the cheese factory at Bega! Then we found a very interesting town to explore at lunchtime, called Cobargo. It looked very historical and the shops had really old things or good art and craft.Read more

    A quiet afternoon in Eden

    Exploring the lookout, lunch in a nice outside cafe, and two times in the pool! We had barbecued pink ling fish for dinner, it was actually pink!

    Killer Whale Museum!

    April 9, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    We were amazed to learn that killer whales helped men round up other whales for harpooning. The main one was called Old Tom and he wore down his teeth by pulling on the boat ropes. The killer whales got paid for helping, with leftover food to eat. The museum about all this was also in a beautiful building with great ocean views.Read more

    Arriving in Eden

    April 8, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Yes, we are expecting paradise!
    Eden is a nice beach town and we will explore tomorrow. We are staying in a cool cabin with 2 bunk beds so we can both be on the top!!! It is a small cabin but we love it because the playground is just outside. And there are 2 bunk beds!

    Lakes Entrance

    April 8, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    We said goodbye to our nice apartment in Paynesville and checked out the market where mum and dad bought relish for a change, and we got dream catchers. The locals were so nice.
    Lakes entrance is a fun holiday town. We went across the bridge to the 90 Mile Beach... Yes it is that long! We all got wet in our clothes in the waves. Ruby fell over in the water so we had fish and chips for lunch in the sun to dry out.Read more

    Jetty, raft and lemonade

    April 7, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    This morning we discovered the jetty near our apartment. There are so many boats in the canal. It's a different kind of life here. Near our apartment there is also a cool old raft which looks like a broken down caravan you can ride on the water. We tried to imagine living on it. Then we had fancy lemonade drinks on our verandah. We also saw a jet plane (but we think a rocket) heading past the moonRead more
