On our third day, we headed to Lone Pine Sanctuary to look at what Australia was most famous for: koalas and kangaroos! Being at the sanctuary kinda reminded me of the time I went to KL Bird Park (except Lone Pine is colder, doesn’t smell like bird poop and there were just a little bit less feathers floating around everywhere).
We started off with the Birds of Prey show before walking around looking at other stuff.
The bird show was pretty interesting, and scary too since the birds were flying from one end to another right above our heads. A very important safety precaution to remain seated at all times in case an eagle hurtled towards your face and pecked your eye out.
Super adorable and intelligent border collies at the sheepdog show.
Kangaroos! They were so adorable! We bought a bag of kangaroo feed and it was the most adorable thing ever. They kept pooping everywhere though, like if they stood still at one spot they would be calmly pooping out little pellets before taking a couple of small hops to their next pooping spot.
Koala bears were so cute!!! Except the whole place smelled like eucalyptus.
We headed to Southbank Parklands for dinner after since we were already so near to Brisbane city.
Dinner was at Bamboo Basket, a highly rated Chinese restaurant by Urbanspoon (we used Urbanspoon a lot over there). The food was really good, authentic and dare we say it was better than a lot of Chinese restaurants in KL. Everything was done well, the fried chicken was delicious, the duck was tender and flavourful. Best of all were the french beans which were full of wok hei with bits of dried shrimp, garlic and meat! It was so good the boo scraped it all up to eat with his rice. Definitely one of the highlights of food on our trip (ironically CHINESE food).
