Heading Down Under - Aussie Land by valeriepeltier

Awake at 7am I gathered my things and organized my bags ready for the day. Before catching the bus to Airlie beach today we were first going to check out the aquarium and the turtle hospital. The people at the front desk were very accommodating with letting us store our large backpacks in the cupboards and kept them locked up while we toured the facility. Lost I our own little worlds Lauren and I wandered around reading the interpretive signage, and gazing into the various tanks to watch the fish, Rays, sharks, sea stars and turtles.
Green Sea Turtles
Hawksbill Turtles
Flat Backed Turtles
We sat in on three of their presentations and wandered the entire facility before grabbing our bags in order to catch our bus on time. If we wouldn't of had to catch a bus I could of easily stayed there another couple hours staring into the tanks watching the marine life interact with one another. It was a fascinating visit and I was glad we took the time to check it out before leaving Townsville.
Plus I now know a little bit more about oceanic marine life.
