Day 4

Today's activities were at Gold Coast. First we went to Sea World and spent a few hours there enjoying the rides and shows. However, the weather turned bad around 2.5 hours in and started emitting lightening and rain.

We ducked into the aquarium to prevent from getting wet and also because that was my favourite part. The tanks were filled with beautiful sea creatures from sharks, turtles, stingrays to an assortment of fish. I was mesmerized.

As a result, many of the performances and rides were closed down including the dolphin show and sea lion show. I love watching dolphin shows so I was a bit disappointed but I understood the need for safety precautions.

After Sea World we went to Surfer's Paradise beach on Gold Coast. It was raining so there were only two surfers in the water but due to the rain we were able to see a double rainbow! At one point there was even a bolt of lightening under the double rainbow which was very cool.

Day 5

Full day of driving from Gold Coast back to Sydney.

There is a lot of travelling time with this itinerary but we were able to see the animals, nature and scenes that we wanted to see in Australia.
