Cairns: Day Two and Three

On our second day we slept in late then drove around Port Douglas, a town north of where we stayed. Afterwards we went to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. You can watch them feed some crocs here on YouTube. Here Ben got his new name: Snake Boy.

During one show he was picked to go up front. The guide then proceed to wrap a python around Ben.

Ben was very, very happy.

I was happy that it was not me that was picked!

The zoo also had some koalas so Melissa was very happy.

The next day we went to a mountain town call Kuranda. We took a train up and a skyrail down. We really enjoyed the skyrail as we were able to really enjoy the rain forest. Kuranda also had koalas - but this time the kids could hold them not just pet them. We also feed more 'roos - such a calm animal!
Kuranda also had a butterfly and a bird sanctuary. We chose to visit the butterfly instead of the birds. I really enjoyed it because we hit it at the right time for a guided tour. I never knew there was so much to butterflies to know! There was also a snake zoo and you guessed it - the boys went there. Melissa and I went shopping instead! And yes, Ben got to hold another snake there, too.
