This morning started off eating eggs and flat bread with some Muslim’s that had camped next to us. The food was lovely and Abdullah, who has been living in Brisbane for 12 years, was intrigued in Jake’s beliefs considering he works in science, all light topics for breakfast… 

We headed off around 9am for Australia Zoo, Steve Irwin’s pride and joy. We managed to survive the whole day here despite the temperature being into the 30’s! 

We are now at a campsite around 4km from the zoo, it’s $15 a night but involves showers and after this heat it seems a small price to pay for feeling clean!

We’re hoping it cool down considerably this evening as sleeping in the car at these temperatures is no fun, and the amount of mosquitos and spiders around means leaving windows open isn’t an option.

Here’s to a shower and hopefully a comfortable nights sleep!

  1. Hi both, yes well after that little blog I’m feeling a bit itchy myself. Sleeping in temperatures that linger into the night is always uncomfortable and in a metal box effectively.
    I guess the coast is your only saviour and even a short distance inland is a warmer clime’.
    Reading about the Zoo it has some excellent reviews but 100 acres takes some walking around in the heat………….you need Gelato ………Take care, stay safe XX
