‘Our first stop was a wildlife park. It was very clean and we got to feed kangaroos. We saw many different animals native to Australia. The 2nd stop was the dolphin tour and even though it was raining we were able to see dolphins, including a baby. The most fun though was the 4WD tour and the sandboarding. The only thing I was sorry about was that it closed early due to the rain.’
