Got to Brisvegas and spent the first hour marvelling at both the crazy reception man and the Hammer Horror style ancient lift at my Base hostel. Then went for a walk on the Southbank and in the Farmers market- possibly the best food related freebies I have ever seen! That night went to the Down Under Bar for their Big Backpacker Beach Party to watch limbo games, hoop throwing, Macho Men and wet t-shirt contests.

Moment of the Day- the bewigged host lifting Beki up and carrying her to the limbo contest.

The next day went to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (camera of course died just as I got to the entrance) and cuddled up to Wiley- a beast of a koala who was far more interested in his Euchaliptus leaves than in posing correctly for the camera. then had a stroll around the various koala enclosures such as 'retirment home' and 'kindergarten' before going to see the other animals- wombats are actually very cute and funny. Highlight of the day though was the Lorikeet feeding show- surrounded by hundreds of multicoloured birds (dam you camera) who all flew away at exactly the same time- soooo beautiful. That night just went to the Pig and Whistle with Beki and treated myself to Malibu and Pinapple- my liver was grateful for the night off from goon.

My last day in Brissy just dossed around in the Botanical Gardens with the girls- then went to see the new Sex and the City movie- absolutely hillarous and so much better than the first. Particularly liked the Danish Architect character- A silver fox indeed!

Quote of the Day- 'Laurence of my Labia' Samantha Jones you will always be quality.
