While on a trip out to O'Reilly's Guesthouse from the Gold Coast, we saw some beautiful parrots in the semi-wild. What I mean by that is that they were actually in a tree outside the guesthouse, able to fly away, but were drawn in by all the tourists feeding them.
There was a circular path around the tree, and bird feed was available to feed them. If you put a little seed in your hair, the birds would actually land on your head and eat it out! Quite fun....
There is so much more to the Gold Coast, than just beautiful beaches.
The Hinterland, which is only about 30 minutes drive from the city, opens up a whole new world.
Here you will experience nature, wildlife, waterfalls, mountains, and forests... Lovely natural bushland, where you can enjoy hiking and bushwalks.
Fondest memory: This is a hard one to single out. I would have to say 'everything' :)
Wildlife Parks, Cruising through the shopping centers,
Seeing all the sights, The nightlife, Cruises through the Canals, Theme parks.. and so much more.
Favorite thing: Another cute lorikeet! :) If you don't like to have birds on your head/arms/shoulders etc then don't pick up any of the food while at this place...you will surely have birds everywhere if they see you have food. :) It's fun though to have piles of birds climbing all over you - until they start fighting...haha... ;)
