A visit to Melbourne Zoo on my time travelling holiday to the last weekend of August 2018.

My daughter and I travelled by tram and met with my son at the entry to the Zoo. I won’t bore you with descriptions because the animals speak for themselves. You can visit the zoo’s website if you would like detailed information. I highly recommend checking it out because it is very informative.

The Meercat Keeper Talk

The Reptile House

(I wish I had recorded the names of the reptiles.)

Fascinating Coati

(I must admit I have never seen these animals before)

African Wild Dogs

King Leo

Beguiling Tapir

I can’t begin to tell you how sore my feet are. I have never felt like this before, the soles of my feet are burning. We stopped at the food van beside the alternate zoo entry/exit and had something to eat and a drink. The weather looked like it was about to turn so all in all we decided it was time to leave.

I look forward to returning another time as there is still so much more to see. It’s just after 4.00 pm

Hint: Still travelling in real-time? Check in again at 6.30 pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time) today.
