I find that I have a compelling urge to do things that remind me of my past life in Sydney when I’m there. This trip one of the (many) things I was compelled to do was Wildlife World.
I have a lot of fun running around inside this small zoo in the centre of Darling Harbour, and this trip I was lucky enough to be able to share it with my brother and his kids. Would you like to know more?
With our Annual Pass at its expiry date we packed up our bags and headed off for one last jaunt with the animals.
We were reminded why you need to be careful when hiking through the Australian bush.
We cracked jokes about Drop Bears, loudly, for the tourists’ benefit.
These guys were playing near the water as it was a warm day out!
According to the sign, this fella is the world’s deadliest bird. He also took issue with the nice man who was trying to clean his glass. Poor man *shakes head*
This half of the emblem could have been a taxidermy specimen! I swear he was moving around on the day! (Boing! Boing! Boing!)
And I’ll never forget having an emu steal my cheese sandwich when I was a child. Damn emu! *shakes fist*
Some types will ever be prone to playing up to the paparazzi.
And as we bid a fond farewell, we noticed Rex was enjoying some sun. One would almost swear he was waiting for someone, or something, to fall in.
Yep. He’s awake alright! Just waiting for one small slip up!
Onwards and upwards! Last Saturday had some of the most glorious weather Autumn has to offer.
Overlooking this spectacular view (and with a discount voucher) we sat down to a spot of lunch at the Blackbird Café.
Himself just needed to ingest copious amounts of fuel, and went for the Hawaiian Pizza.
I felt like being a little more daring and ordered the Crocodile Burger!
Crocodile is a very delicately flavoured meat. Vaguely peppery. I think it may have been a little too sweet for me with the mango chutney, but I was informed they have to cater to tourists’ tastes which tend to run in that direction.
Darling Harbour can really be a wondrous place. So long as I don’t have to deal with too many tourists I really enjoy being there!
I think I’ll have to procure some crocodile for myself and experiment with cooking it …
