Got up and had a wander into the city before getting on the bus to Noosa. Very nice place, good hostel. Had some food and wandered down to the beach to go fishing.
Up early for a trip to Australia Zoo, the one Steve Irwin used to work at. Saw loads of animals including crocodiles, tigers, elephants, snakes, kangaroos, koalas, dingo's, tasmanian devils, wombats, otters, etc. etc. We went to the Crocoseum show (Steve Irwins 'dream') which his wife and kids presented...birds snakes, crocs. Then we headed over to the tiger enclosure and watched the handlers get in and play with them, pretty crazy in the water. After the zoo we headed back to the hostel.
Up ealry to set out on the Noosa coastal walk, which ran up and down cliffs and along beaches from Sunshine beach around to Main beach and the town. Very pleasant with good views of dolphins below the cliffs. The waves were pretty big on some of the beaches which was cool. In the evening we headed down to the beach and went fishing. I caught the worlds biggest fish, as seen in the photo...
