Got to Noosa bus terminal, & got picked up by a minibus to take us to our accomodation in Nossaville for that evening. Headed into town to check out the beach, & for John to have a bit of a surf.
Checked into a campsite the next day, which was just on the river. The campsite was quite big but quiet, with showers, laundry, and BBQ area. Sat by the river that night with a GOON of wine and some fish & chips. The chips are not like what you get back home, but instead frozen chips?
The town was nice with a few bars and shops, only a 25 min walk from our campsite. Spent a few hours walking around Noosa National Park through the forest, got to see a lone Koala sitting in a tree sleeping. The trail took us up to a great look out point then back down along a coast walk, where we saw some cool surfers out on the waves. The total distance was around 7k, but a nice way to spend an afternoon.
The next day we had booked our free bus to take us to the famous Australian Zoo, run by Steve & Teri Irwin. The bus takes about an hour an a half to get there & we arrived about 10.30am, but the show you a video about Steve's life The Crocodile Hunter to keep you entertained on the way. The first thing we saw was Harriett the Tortiose, who is around 170 years old not bad for an old girl. We then sat through a show in a Crocoseum with Irish dancing for St.P's day, snakes, tigers, birds, and croc feeding. We hoped Steve himself would put in an appearance for the croc feeding, but no luck there (we're not Irish!) But did bump into him out side breifly after the show, he seemed very friendly!! In the afternoon we saw loads from Cheetahs, Elephants, Emus, Koalas, Kangaroos, more birds, Wombats, more snakes, lizards, camels, cassowarys, dingos, more crocs & aligators, & even otters. Crikey!! What a day, it was beauty!! The bus dropped us off in town for around 5 ish, where we were able to get back & watch the sun set over the river at the camp with a pizza.
