Did you know that there are hundreds of festivals taking place Down Under each year? Some of them are small and community-based (e.g. Apollo Bay Music Festival), while others are large (e.g. Falls Festival) and able to bring international performers and Australian stars. The types of festivals range from arts and cultural to music, film and theme-based ones. They are being held across the entire country (which is not a small deal), but the most frequent starting point, especially for foreign tourists, is Sydney, so we too will take it from there. Here are some of the most amazing festivals held in Australia you simply cannot miss. Read more

Darwin: A Visit to Katherine Gorge

Katherine, Northern Territory, Australia
Today we took a day trip to Katherine Gorge, a truly gorgeous river system in the Northern Terrority about three hours south of Darwin. You might think that I’m sick of long journeys but I’m almost immune to them by now. Anyway, we did a boat tour of the gorge and enjoyed the serenity interrupted only by a few passing kayaks and wild crocodiles. There are also aboriginal paintings in some areas of the gorge, but they are a little tough to make out. We unfortunately missed our tour departure time by literally one minute (we had to use the bathroom, sorry!). Luckily we got a later tour but that meant missing out on the Cutta Cutta Caves nearby. Win some, lose some.

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
My sister, cousin and I took a last spin of Sydney today before we head to Darwin tomorrow. It was nice getting a break from the parents and doing our own thing for the first time all week. They happily went to the Botanical Gardens (yawn) while we pranced around Sydney and ate ice cream… lots of ice cream. We happened upon an amazing and unique shop called N2 Gelato Extreme that makes ice cream on the spot by freezing it with nitrogen.. we may have stopped there once or twice throughout the day. It looks more like a chemistry lab than ice cream shop but the results were fantastic! It’s located within Chinatown.

Sydney’s Featherdale Wildlife Park

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Today was probably one of the best parts of Sydney: visiting an Australian animal petting zoo! Featherdale Wildlife Park is a small sanctuary when people can get up close and personal with koalas, kangaroos, wallabies (smaller-looking kangaroos), and several other Australian native animals. We had so much fun petting and feeding the wallabies that were roaming all over the park, trying to get the best selfie we could. The Park seems to be overlooked as my relatives hadn’t heard of it before. It has something for all ages and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Sydney as I wouldn’t have had the same experiences interacting with the animals in the zoo.
Probably the oldest-looking koala I’ve ever seen

Hungry mungry!
Got something on your face there…
Doesn’t seem too thrilled about the selfie…
A bunch of lazy bones!
Sorry, my camera isn’t food!

There were plenty of other animals, too, but none were as much fun as those wallabies!

Fairy penguins
A grumpy looking kookaburra
A quokka, possibly the cutest and happiest looking animal ever!
How you doin?
A BABY KOALA WITH ITS MOM! My life is complete.

As I said, I definitely recommend checking out Featherdale! It’s a quiet and uncrowded space with a lot to offer.
