Ok, it’s going to be a LIGHTENING ROUND for Day 5, as there are more stories to tell, and I need to get CAUGHT UP! 🙂
First things first- we visited Taronga Zoo bright and on Thursday morning, got to get up close with koalas and kangaroos, and then had some cool wildlife interactions overlooking Sydney Harbour. Even if you don’t really like zoos, Taronga is still well worth a visit- the exhibits are world-class, the range of wildlife is HUGE, and the views are SPECTACULAR. There’s no doubt about it- these animals have the best views in ALL of Sydney!
After the trip to the zoo, we headed over to the Sydney Cricket Ground for an adrenaline-pumping afternoon of Australian Rules Football training. Citibank Australia is a MASSIVE supporter of the legendary (and current cup-holding 2012 champion) Sydney Swans, and put on an awesome Footy Experience for us at the SCG. We were lucky to have three of the current players put us through drills, share some pointers, and give us a glimpse of what it would be like to play in the AFL. ROUGH, that’s for sure. It was a BRILLIANT day, and we were all excited to do something physically active. We were kicking balls all over the place, flying into tackles, and learning all about this incredible sport unique to Australia. It was AWESOME, and I am definitely feeling it today…
So- that was Day 5. Sorry it was so brief, but I really needed to get caught up! Stay tuned- there are more adventures to follow. Next up- SOUTH AUSTRALIA!
