Sunshine Coast: Day 18 (Part 1)

We had to leave this beautiful place. Very sad—should have stayed longer :(

IMG_0807This is Dolly, the motel’s owners’ pet dog. They have two—brown and black. I forgot the name of the other one.

IMG_0809We had breakfast at the Sunshine Coast winner of the Best Breakfast Award—Hot Pipis.

Summer and I ordered the same breakfast


This is my boyfie’s :)

During our breakfast, we realised that we were the only Asians in Mooloolaba. Australians and Westerners were everywhere! You see more Asians in Gold Coast.

IMG_0819 IMG_0820 We decided to drop by the coast before we left to Australia Zoo. We will definitely be back here again and in that time, we will definitely stay longer :)


Welcome to Australia Zoo, Home of The Crocodile Hunter, you know, Steve Irwin? Since there are too many pictures of the animals that I’d taken in the zoo, I will just post up those I, personally, do not get to see in Malaysia.

IMG_0846Cameron the Crocodile—this reinforced concrete replica was made at Australia Zoo, by their sculptor Cameron Chapman. It weighs 930kgs (2,050 pounds) and is 27’ (8.23 metres) long!

IMG_0864World’s Most Venomous Snake, Fierce Snake. If you were tagged by this guy over here, you’d be in a lot of trouble—one bite possesses enough punch to drop 100 full grown men. Despite this ferocious reputation, it is a shy species that rarely encounters people.

IMG_0890 Australia’s longest snake, Scrub Python. Scrubbies in the rainforests of northern Queensland have been known to take on food items as large as a full grown wallaby. This snake is the King of Australians Python.

IMG_0894This animal is really adorable. It’s Wombat! You know what’s it called in Chinese? 王八! Hah! That’s very interesting xD

IMG_0929Entering the Red Kangaroo heaven. I have no idea what’s the difference between a normal kangaroo and a red kangaroo. Anyone?

IMG_0941Honestly, I was super scared to get close to it. You never know when it will kick you or scratch you or do whatever that will hurt you O.o


He posed! lol 



Next was Koalas! Despite being adorable, what I didn’t know about them is they smell –_-

IMG_0974The Elephants along with Steve Irwin’s wife and kids


My third ice-cream in Australia! lol

IMG_0981White Pony! The girl is adorable as well. There was this pony that stopped and shitted lol! Unfortunately, the rides are only available for kids.


Finally we were inside the heaven of both Kangaroo and Wallaby. The problem was, we didn’t know how to differentiate them!

IMG_1010This beauty is a mother. Joey is inside her pouch! :D

IMG_1013Short-beaked Echidna—the way it walks is really adorable xD

IMG_1018The famous Crocoseum!

After we watched a short show, we had to leave the place. We were inside the souvenir shop when I came across with this:



To Point One—still remember how I read it out loud inside the lecture hall? I bet May and Ag do xD

Next destination was Glass House Mountains.

To be continued…
