Simply Brisbane’s Best

We spent Easter Monday morning at Alma Park Zoo with The Threebies, thanks largely to a huge discount voucher that Chellsie’s parents had purchased and passed on to us. Thanks, Ray and Maree!

For the record, I believe it’s nearly impossible to take good photos at a zoo; unless of course, you’re specifically after lots of photos of animals. And again, for the record – nobody wants to see your photos of the animals at the zoo.

Alma Park has some saving graces on this front though, because they have lots of places where you can actually interact with the animals. Like above, where Kristy and Oscar got to feed a “baa baa” (as Oscar would call it). Or, perhaps this:

Ted, Ben, Emus

Yes, to the casual observer, this may look like Ted and Ben are snubbing the emus; what you may not realise is that it’s actually a photo of Ben teaching Ted to say, “Get Down!”, just like in Terminator 2. The emus just happened to be there, milling about like a bunch of Angry Birds.

And so, would I recommend Alma Park Zoo? Yes! Especially if you happen to own an iPhone, and you wish for the camera to be cleaned by a cow.

A few more photos in the Alma Park Zoo photo album. I promise I’ve kept the animal shots to a minimum.
