Brisbane, Australia

I’m about to leave Brisbane after a lovely week staying with Helen.

We spent a wonderful couple of days on Tangalooma, a resort and former whaling station on Moreton Island.  I went snorkelling around the artificial reef created on the Tangalooma Wrecks, fifteen vessels that have been deliberately sunk off the island to provide a habitat for marine wildlife.

We also fed the gorgeous wild dolphins that swim around the island every night, and had a go at quad biking up and down the sand dunes.  That was pretty fun but a bit hair-raising, particularly at the point where I had to get pulled out of a wattle tree by the very patient quad bike instructor!

I’ve met some more Australian wildlife in Brisbane:




And one of the highlights of my visit was definitely our trip to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where I got up close and personal with the cutest animal I have ever met:
