Our long weekend mini-break...

We made the most of the long weekend and headed off on a mini-break to the Sunshine Coast.  So beautiful to be greeted by this view each morning...


We had the most gorgeous weather while we were there...so lucky after all the rain we've had lately!  We took long walks, the kids had a ball in the pool, we relaxed on the balcony overlooking the ocean, and took the kids to Underwater World and then Australia Zoo. 

We'd never been to Australia Zoo!  Pretty sad really when it's only a couple of hours away.   We were so impressed by how beautiful and clean the grounds and the enclosures were...it really is a fantastic place to spend the day.  Madi loved feeding the goats and sheep in the kids zoo and then patting the koalas and kangaroos.  The boys loved the tigers and elephants...and of course the crocodiles!  We took loads of photos...too many to share here...but here are just a couple of my faves...




It was so nice just to get away for a few days together.  We're going to have to plan another little mini-break soon!

  2. What a gorgeous little getaway Sheree. I hope you do get to do it again soon!

    I went to Australia Zoo 19 years ago! I imagine it's changed a lot!
