Australia Zoo – Founded by the irrepressible Aussie Steve Irwin was a fantastic day out for all of us. It features most of Austalia’s natural fauna – which of course means pretty much every animal will kill you given half a chance. As Stevo would say “Crikey !”...

Well we’re on our way home. This time we travelled on the mighty Airbus A380. A most impressive leviathan of the air. The A380 has a length of 72.7m which is only 1.1m longer than a 747 but can carry 96 more passengers! Its secret lies in the fact that it contains 2 decks. Whilst the interior on the main deck, which we were...

Back in Australia again after 4 years and yet it only seems a short while ago that we were here on our 7 week long expedition to New Zealand, Australia and of course Norfolk Island.
