  3. hi everyone! bit of a random question but was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions... we are going camping to mount gambier in october and are planning to take the dog with us, then we thought well its only a few hours drive to melbourne , we havent been before, be nice to go with the kids to the zoo, aquarium etc and then we thought 'what about the dog?' we obviously cant take her in the zoo......no dogs allowed in i'm afraid lol anyone got any suggestions? be good to find a dog sitter for a 6 hours during the day....do kennels even do this type of thing? we were thinking of camping in the Geelong area or somewhere similar so we could just make a couple of day trips into melbourne..... plans may now be changing because of the dog! any suggestions appreciated!

    In a Zoo......!!!!

    now i know how caged animals feel .......i just feel as though im being watched by a couple of crazed animals waiting to pounce , but those caged animals just laugh in the watchers faces .......:laugh:..........:wink:
  5. Hello i have worked out the forum on my mobile al last! I've been here at south Perth riverfront for 6 weeks now and am just doing 2 days a week gardening until now so still lots of time. I've had a little walk at kings park and been around the river both of which were a pleasure. Been around the subs a bit while shopping and job seeking. My cousins though, also in their twenties are often busy so i end up doing things alone quite a lot. My room mate is away two weeks in three at the mines so thats boring. I would like to be able to 'hang out' in places like fremantle or the riverfront, instead of feeling rushed to get back since i'm on my tod. I'd like friends, people to chat to outside of the aussie circles. They are... Quite different the australians and i feel i haven't had many a genuine conversation with them. Anyway things i want to do include go to the zoo and see fremantle prison or whatever it is i keep seeing signposted. I'm so close to the zoo i get woken up by the animals but still not been.. The aussies say it's too hot to enjoy it..! So if anyone would like to do that or something else let me know. No rush for it, just floating the idea out there as it were. Byeee

    Perth Zoo

    We decided to visit Perth Zoo today, as we did not go last week as hubby started work. We left Secret Harbour at 8.45am and arrived at Perth Zoo at about 9.30 and then we parked up for free and paid just $50 for 5 us to get into the zoo. We wandered round, and the kids finally saw some kangaroos and 1 came right up and nudged the kids, almost asking to be stroked, which they did...my 2 year old kept trying to cuddle the darn thing!!!! Eventually prized them away and continued round the zoo...stopped for a picnic...walked some more...everyone we came across was chatty and helpful pointing out where the koalas were hiding and where the baby monkeys were (in england you would be lucky to have someone open a door for you). Then at the hyenas my 2 and 6 year old were looking through the fence at them and then bump 2 year old on the ground on her bum and 6 year old being barged out of the way as 3 small boys (about 8) pushed him out of the way and stood up on the fence in front of where they were...I was gobsmaked..the mother said nothing about what they had done just asked if they could see now!!! Oh and guess what they were English!!! The next display there they were again commenting how Crap the place was and never seen such S**t in their life!! Held my tongue and stayed back for a while so we did not have to listen to them. We came away from the Zoo at 3.30, have had a thoroughly enjoyable day as did the kids, great value for money and will def. be returning. Sadly my camera decided to stop bloody working so got no bloody photos!!!!!!! Still had a good day though and would recomend Perth Zoo to anyone. Sue
  7. So, I have had this crazy idea. We are in Sydney, hubby is working very hard doing long hours but has 4 days off over easter weekend. As he is opening a new business in end June/beginning July it will probably be his last bit of time off for a couple of years as he will be working 6 day weeks for a bit. Our two dd's love animals, so I was just wondering whether it is a viable option to hop on a plane, and visit Australia Zoo. I have heard some fab things about it but wondered if it was worth the effort it would take to arrange as a surprise for them. So I have a couple of (probably stupid) questions about it. Would we fly to Brisbane and then hire a car and drive there? Where should we stay? Is there anything else to do nearby so that we could stretch the visit over the four days? If anyone had any ideas, reviews, experience etc I would be very grateful to have them. I really fancy the idea of giving them a surprise and seeing a bit more of this wonderful country.
