Day 37 – Cairns Tropical Zoo

Monday, Feb 22, 2016

It was a windy day and the waves were quite high at the beach, however, there were people inside the swim net enjoying the waves. It was still quite warm, however, the morning rain had cooled down the temperature to 28 C (82 F) with a 55% relative humidity.

I spend the day catching up with my journal walking along the beach boardwalk and taking the bus to the Cairns Tropical Zoo. It is not very large but they have a good sampling of native animals and many of the animals are able to wander about and you could feed the koalas and kangaroos and even hold a koala if you wanted to. I took a picture of this kangaroo because she had a joey in her pouch, with its legs and head hanging out as they both ate food on the ground.

I prefer to see the animals in their natural habitat, however, there are a few, such as the snakes and crocodiles that I prefer to see in a controlled environment.

  1. Even though I am a nature person, I can do without the snakes and crocodiles. The absence of them is a plus for New Zealand travel. The little green frog was cute.
