A large lake surrounded by winding trails offers a nice place for a leisurely stroll. The residents of the park are woodland ducks including Dusty Moorhens and Purple Swamphens. Be sure when visiting to bring along bread or crackers to feed the ducks. Two playgrounds will occupy the kids while dinner cooks on the barbeque. One playpark has a Dream of Flight theme and is a perfect place for imaginative play.
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
This zoo is rated one of the top ten zoos in the world. Home to over 130 rescued koalas, this zoo offers so much more. There are so many animals to see here including snakes, lizards, crocodiles, turtles, raptors, platypus, dingoes, Tasmanian devils, bats, and wombats. Visitors will enjoy the Birds of Prey and Sheepdog Herding shows before taking a moment to hold a snake or cuddle a koala.
This zoo is the brainchild of the late Steve Irwin. Each of the exhibits is designed with the animals in mind while providing the best viewing experience for guests. Exhibits include the African Safari Park, Crocoseum where daily shows are meant to educate viewers, the Tiger Temple, and Elephantasia.
For a more exotic experience try an animal encounter. Guests get up close and personal with the zoo's elephants, tortoises, Tasmanian devils, and cheetahs. There are opportunities to feed the elephants, crocodiles, and wallabies as well.
The Roving Wildlife team is made up of zoo staff that roams the walkways with animals for guests to see and touch. These animals vary, but can include lizards, skinks, baby alligators, koalas, and dingoes.
Saint Helena Island
Take a step back in time once the shores of this island come into view. During the day tour a member from the theatrical troupe accompanies guests through the colonial history of the island.
After dark, the island takes on a whole new light when the ghost tour begins. Explore the spooky history of the Saint Helena Island Prison and cemetery before having a tasty dessert.
Holiday Rentals: Fine Brisbane Accommodation
Instead of staying in hotel for a Brisbane holiday, choose a rental. Private rentals offer peace and quiet because there aren't any other guests. Sleeping arrangements allow for a better night's sleep than a cramped hotel room. Laundry and room service charges don't exist in rentals with the equipment for cooking and washing. Holiday rentals let guests live like a local in their home away from home.
