Hello from Australia!!
We arrived safe and sound although a little jetlagged a couple of days ago (hard to remember which day is which sometimes!!). So far been exploring Brisbane city – a river runs down the middle splitting the arty cultural Southbank from the main city shops. Last night we saw a light show on the water as part of Brisbane festival, was really impressive and at one point 3 people on bendy pillars were dancing in a waterfall of water and lights…! (Quite hard to explain..) We also wandered round the modern art gallery and Botanic gardens. Lots of greenery and animals around – lizards and iguanas just chilling on the paths!
Today we went to the Koala sanctuary (one of the things that I (Cordelia) wanted to do the most!). We BOTH held a koala and Kels loved every second of it!! The koalas were actually pretty heavy and it was like holding a baby haha, they were sooo cute. Also very funny watching them in their trees. We walked through a field of kangaroos and wallabies which was quite surreal, and also saw a couple of Joey’s in their mums’ pouches! Definitely recommend it.
Catching a flight up to Cairns tomorrow to start coming back down the East coast. Loving the weather (not so much the snoring roommates!) and the chilled vibe of the hostel we’ve been staying in.
Love to everyone back home,
Kelsey & Cordelia xxx
Ps will upload some pics soon!!
