When I first realized I would be spending an extended amount of time in Australia this year, I knew I wanted to fill this season with the things I can’t do anywhere else in the world.
This means mornings at my uncle’s golf course, going to the church I grew up in, drinking oak chocolate milks (legendary), and of course, experiencing the Australian wildlife.
Since we’ve been back, we’ve had snakes in our pool, funnel web spiders in our backyard, and thousands of mosquito bites. One time, I legitimately had over 150 mosquito bites. I wish I was exaggerating. It was torture.
All this to say that going to the Australian Reptile Park is something so quintessentially Australian that I knew I wanted to do.
I’ve been going to the reptile park my entire life, so it was a must-see before we head back to the States.
I totally believe that anyone visiting Australia should do something like this. It was honestly such a good time. We got to get up close and personal with so many crazy animals, and there were the sweetest kangaroos hopping around. If you’re a tourist and you want to see a kangaroo– this is the place to go. They are so tame! You can also hold koalas and snakes and all sorts of things like that if you’re interested!
All the love.
