The Australian Adventure

Here are some pictures that I took on my trip to Australia from Dunedin. The places I am going to cover in this post are Oamaru, Christchurch, Gold Coast and Brisbane. :) I had heaps of fun there and I'm delighted to share these pictures with everyone. :)

Here are some pictures of Oamaru where the bus I was taking stopped for morning tea.. :)

A beautiful church in Oamaru.

Oamaru seafront...

This place looks so beautiful...

Welcome to Oamaru... :)

The bus then headed straight to Christchurch after the half an hour break in Oamaru. Since I arrived early at the airport, I decided to explore the place before heading off to Gold Coast. :)

Spotted a US Air Force plane in Christchurch Airport..

 After the long wait at Christchurch airport, I finally boarded the place to Gold Coast. I absolutely fell in love with this place. Here are some pictures I took while I was there.

A picture I took at sunset in Gold Coast. Such a beautiful place. :)
Coolangatta beach overlooking Surfers Paradise.

Another picture of sunset which I took while on a cruise.

Gold Coast... :)
Look who I found in the streets of Gold Coast.. :) Hahaha. Spotted him at Surfers Paradise. He was actually really good at juggling those soccer balls.
Another view of Gold Coast from the cruise.
Taking time out to reflect on what he has done... Haha.. :)

 We then took the Airtrain headed for Brisbane. 

At the Plaza...

 Since I was already in Australia, I thought that it would be a waste if I didn't see a koala or a kangaroo so I decided to head to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. I was mesmerized by this place and it was definitely a right choice to visit this place...

Fierce looking eagle...
Kangaroo crossing.... Hahaha

You get what I meant when I say this place was absolutely breath-taking...

Cute little ponies... :) ps: I think it was a kid who was playing with the mane. Not me...

Feeding time... :)

Nap time... Looks cute when the pigeons surrounded the kangaroo...

Sleeping koala... :)

My first encounter with an emu too.... :)

It's happily greeting me... :)

I like the fact that this koala is sleeping with a big smile on its face... :)

This was an active koala. Apparently koalas spend about 20 hours a day sleeping.... Hmmm... Maybe I should be a koala.. :)

A lizard decided to casually walk in front of me and scared the guts out of me... Hmmmm..

Tasmanian devil... It was a very active one indeed.
This is only a section of my trip as I could not find time to edit the other pictures... I'll upload them as soon as I can. Till then, I hope everyone liked the photos. :)
