Next up on my Adventure was our trip to the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia. Have you ever been? This zoo has over 4000 animals with many species that are threatened. No only do they rescue and rehabilitate animals, but they also aim to make sure their habitats are natural and healthy for the animals!
You can learn more about their conservation methods on their website.
Lynn again! Next in my adventure is Australia is about how I got to tour Rottnest Island. We got to see the Wadjemup lighthouse and explore everything the island had to offer. We toured the island in a car and got to cruise along the coast and see the island locals and tourists in the water and on the beaches. The Wadjemup lighthouse was rich with history and stood 20 meters tall. The tower was finished in 1842 but replaced with the one we see now in 1896.
While on our journey we got to see quokkas and other wildlife that call the island home.
Recently my family and I traveled to Australia and got to experience Sydney, Perth, Rottnest Island and the Margaret River Area. Each day I will be posting about my adventures down under and talking about some of the adventures my family and I got to experience. First up on my list is Sydney and my experiences with the Penguins at SEALIFE Sydney Aquarium.
First up on my adventure is our visit to the SEALIFE Sydney Aquarium where we got to experience the Penguin Passport. With this passport, we were able to go and see how penguins interact with eachother.
When we went, the Cheeky Gentoo penguins had begun breeding season, so we were able to assist the males by giving them pretty rocks to give to their potential mates. In the wild, a female Cheeky Gentoo Penguin must accept the rock from the male penguin in order to breed. The male penguin will continue to give the females pretty rocks that she takes to her nest. We were unable to walk on the ice with the penguins due to it being breeding season.
We also learned about why the Cheeky Gentoo's penguins feet are bright orange, which is due to their diet of crill in the wild.
Keep an eye out for tomorrow's blog post on our experiences with the Koala's at the WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.
Recently we got to experience the new Norwegian Joy Cruise Ship in its Inaugural launch. We did a quick sail over to Mexico where the boat docked overnight. We got unlimited access to all the ship's luxury amenities. The staff onboard were friendly, kind, and helpful every step of the way. We wanted to share our experience with you on this amazing ship in hopes that you too will get to experience the magic of the Norwegian Cruise Line. Some of the activities on board included watching the musical "Footloose" live, experiencing the dining hall which was sectioned off to ensure a more private dining feel. The food was diverse with seafood options and classy chocolate desserts. We are thankful for the Norwegian Cruise Line to let us experience its inaugural sailing!
