Well we’ve made it to the end of our Great Australia Adventure! We spent our last couple days in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland.
We spent the end of 2014 and beginning of 2015 in Adelaide, the capital of South Australia.
We spent the days following Christmas at Mena Homestead enjoying our time with Kelli, Kye, Lindsay, his kids Dylan and April, cousin Mark, and several of their closest friends. Mena truly is a special place and it was hard to pack up and leave.
Merry Christmas everyone! We’re having a wonderful Australian holiday with Kelli and family.
Before we left Mount Gambier, we stopped by to see the Blue Lake, very original name right? Then we headed to see the Big Lobster! It’s located in the small town of Kingston SE.
After leaving Melbourne, we headed down the coast and across the Great Ocean Road.
We had a great time in Melbourne! Unlike the other major cities we’ve visited in Australia, it’s a bit more rough around the edges. But we liked that about it.
After leaving Sydney’s CBD, we took a short detour to the Featherdale Wildlife Park. It’s a privately funded and operated park with dozens of animal species, many of which you can pet and feed like a petting zoo. Here are some highlights:
We had three days to explore around Sydney. In addition to a touristy bus tour, we also ate some amazing food and stayed at the swanky Park Hyatt Sydney hotel.
