While I’m not usually a zoo/aquarium type, as I prefer animal sanctuaries and wildlife preserves, I couldn’t help but want to see some awesome fish while I was down here after my sweetheart convinced me how cool it would be. And it was quite cool, learning more about the animals up close. While the Melbourne Aquarium doesn’t get it right the whole time (as far as I’m concerned, they should never be allowing things like flash photography, tapping on the glass, loud environments and other related insensitivities by their visitors), I’m glad I went.
(And no, still no kangaroo or koala sightings. Without a car or really expensive tour bus, it’s hard to get to those locations, but I’m still keeping up hope we’ll think of something that doesn’t involve going to the zoo).
