Australia Zoo has to possibly be the most famous zoo in the world now, primarily made famous by the legend that was the late, great Steve Irwin. I have long been a fan of Steve's from the early days of watching Crocodile Hunter and thinking "who the hell is this crazy guy" but quickly getting… Continue reading AUSTRALIA ZOO – The legend and the legacy.

Excursion Review of the 1 Day Tour to Featherdale Park, Blue Mountains & Parramatta River Cruise. Booked with http://www.fjtours.com.au There seem to be lots of tours out of Sydney to the Blue Mountains so it's hard to know who to go with but when I picked up a leaflet for FJ Tours which combined… Continue reading Blue Mountains and Featherdale Wildlife Park
