Where I stayed
Fawkner Star Motel
As you know if you follow the Odyssey, we love to visit zoo on our travels
- Trails of the Elephants: 5 Asian elephants - male Bong Su and females Mek Kapah, Dokkoon, Kulab and Num-oi - share 3 paddocks. There are 2 baby elephants. One, Mali (born 2010) and her half brother (born 2010) who is named Ongard.
- Butterfly House: a greenhouse-style walk-through exhibit for tropical butterflies.
- Orangutan Sanctuary: a rotation exhibit for two families of orangutans (one consisting of pure Sumatran orangutans and the other of Sumatran-Bornean hybrids) and a family of siamangs. The three enclosures are designed to represent an orangutan rehabilitation sanctuary in Sumatra.
The next day we took the train and headed for the ocean and St.Kilda for a walk on the beach, pier and some lunch. You can see the city in the background of the boats.
