DOWNRIVER ADVENTURE


Wednesday, 8 October 2008
Today I rode on the riverboat, Miribel, down the Brisbane River to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. At the sanctuary I held a koala, got up close and personal with kangaroos, emus, Australian brush turkeys and more. I also got to see lorikeets, kookaburras, a dingo, lots of "flying foxes" (bats) and many other indigenous aussie animals. Fun!

Then, on the way back to Brisbane, I got to take the helm of the Miribel for part of the trip! Bonus!! I never thought I'd get to man the wheel of a riverboat. Loved it!
