Question Safari-like parks

Safari-like Parks

I've been to a park called 'Werribee Zoo' -- one of three Melbourne Zoo's in Victoria State of Australia. The Werribee Zoo is an Open Range one -- ride in a half open bus through the natural habitats each animals live...for example, zebras, hippos, elephants, tigers, ostriches...even those cute meerkats!

Werribee Zoo

It's a fantastic zoo! If anyone is anywhere near Werribee, Victoria, Australia -- be sure to visit Werribee Zoo!

There's another place it's called 'Healesville Sanctuary' - a place where you can see different Australian wildlife and its flora and fauna. Can pet Red or Eastern Grey Kangaroo's! They're soooooo fabulous!

Healesville Sanctuary

There's another Sanctuary up in Queensland -- in Currumbin. It's a LOVELY and large one! I even got the chance to hold a KOALA! Awww...so adorable!
Similar to Healesville, but with much more variety of animals.

Currumbin Sanctuary

Aww lucky you WaterRats13!

There's a Safari Park in Six Flags (3 Theme parks but seperate admissions) We were only able to drive around that...we weren't allowed to pet, feed, put our hands/arms outside of the vehicle. Sucks, doesn't it?

only if i had the money! LOL.

I've always wanted to travel to Australia. I remember when I was in middle school, I knew this classmate who had to move to Australia because of his father's job and a year later, he came back to visit and he was telling me all about Australia and I became interested ever since.

Right now, I'm going to college very soon so maybe in 5-6 years I could possibly travel in Australia ::prays:: heh

Do u realise about the Deaflympics happening in Melbourne, Australia in 2005? U could try coming out then?!

Well, when you DO come out to Australia, rest assured -- you will be guaranteed a good time here and sightseeing all the beautiful flora and fauna of Australia.
My next aim is to have a holiday and scuba dive around The Great Barrier Reef up by Brisbane, Queensland.

awwww You are very lucky to hold Koala. I did hold an adorable cub lion in South Carolina. It was really heavy and thick fur. I wish, I could adopt him but it is illegally.

Hi, Wildkatress -- it really depends on the sort of visa you come out here on. If Visitor Visa -- E-Visa, it's free for 30 to 60 days and costs of flights from USA to Australia...varies from where the flight originates from. (It cost me $700 for one way ticket from SFO to Melb in 1998). My mum recently came out here 2 months ago and she bought a return flight ticket for $900USD! That was pretty cheap!
I came out here on a Prospective Spouse Visa which cost me $769USD, then an additional $510AUD for the 2 year temporary residency visa. I'm currently on a Permanent Residency Visa which I got for free...the next and last step is citizenship and I have to pay $170, that's it.
Been living in Australia for nearly 5 years...2nd August will be exactly 5 years.

Thanks Sabrina, that was the only time I have held a koala since 2000. Three years now.. I wanna hold another one, heheh! The koala's soooooo cute, but they smell (not bad, but they smell strongly of eucalyptus - their main diet is on eucalyptus leaves)

Their fur's soft on the back, but on their bums, it's quite coarse from all that sitting down in the trees and sleeping!

HEY HEY....they're NOT called Koala BEARS at all! You'll be ed that they're distant relatives of the Australian wombat!
I'm not kidding. I've been learning a lot about the Australian wildlife and its flora and fauna (plant life).

If you don't believe me -- go to this link! DPIWE - Wombat And read for yourself!

I know...I know...*sighs* But it'll be WELL WORTH it. It took me 3 years before I was able to afford a flight back home (USA). Thankfully, my sister helped me with the flight costs, so I was able to save up enough to fly over and visit with my Mum and sister for a month.

You are welcome! There is prices on there but you have to click on which rooms do u want.. they have one bedroom..two bedrooms. three bedrooms and 4 bedrooms. You have to click on which bedrooms u want to choose from. Then there are the room names there then click on what room names u want...then they have the the price ranges there. If you plan on going there.. who will u bring?
