Zoo and West End!

Joe had a challenge to address. He is on a mission to go to a zoo in every Australian State/ territory. So of course today we had to find a Queensland Zoo. Australia Zoo was too far to go and way too expensive, and Brisbane city doesn't have a zoo! We found Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary which was just fine according to Jonas. So his list so far consists of Taronga Zoo (NSW), Canberra Zoo (ACT), Perth Zoo (WA), Adelaide Zoo (SA) and now Queenslandd has made the list too (although I do think that Currimbin last year could have made the cut too). He is determined to find Zoos in Victoria, Tasmania and the Northern Territory in the near future so he can start finding all of the others around the world.... With the 'zoo' checked off the list we decided to explore a new precinct within the city. We saw an ad for a really good second hand bookshop in West End so headed in that direction. We ended up having the most delicious lunch in a Greek restaurant- the baby octopus was divine. The service was also excellent and our meal was quite affordable too! We all left smiling in search of some interesting shops in West End. Today was our last day to enjoy Brisbane. Tomorrow we will be heading south via Armidale and then home. Our holiday has passed too quickly!
