    Night Zoo - Freshwater Crocs

    by rhondav_2004 Written Jan 9, 2006

    My favorite activity while in Cairns was going to the Night Zoo...You are picked up at the hotel, and delivered to the Cairns Zoo at around 6P.M. You are served a wonderful bar-b-que steak dinner with all the fixins. While you are enjoying dinner, there is a singer/guitarist and all of the staff are dressed like Australian cowboys from the outback. After dinner, they give you a flashlight and take you on a walking tour of the nocturnal animals at the zoo...the last stop is around a camp-fire where they serve 'damper' which is a kind of bread (has a consistency and taste similar to banana bread-but not as sweet). The intent is not so much for you to eat the bread as it is for the 75-100 kangaroos that you are surrounded by...THEY LOVE IT! And we had a blast feeding the roos!

This picture is of the staff feeding the biggest crocodile I have ever seen-must have been 20 feet...
