Staying in Gympie

No, it's not a small sledgehammer

We are staying at Gympie which is 160 Km north of Brisbane decided to treat ourselves to an ensuite site. We’ve not had one since Broome and felt we deserved to treat ourselves. The main reason for staying here instead of going all the way to Brisbane was firstly to break up the trip, and secondly to give us give a place to stay which is close enough to Australia Zoo.

We spent the day there and were impressed by the cleanliness of the enclosures and the facilities for the visitors. Stand outs for us were the tigers, kangaroos (which we hand fed), and the otters. However, it is very tourist oriented and the live shows were simplistic mainly aimed at kids, and those who don’t have a clue about animals. We felt like we were watching the Wiggles rather than a wildlife show. If you want to find out more info, click onto their web site here
