Aug 8, 2019 - Gabby’s Birthday

Had a fun day out for Gabby’s Birthday. Day trip started with visit to Healesville wildlife sanctuary where we saw lots of Australian wildlife including Koalas, Kangaroos, Wallabys, Dingos, Wombats and lots more.

Back in the city, Gabby and Charlie went for one last swim in the hotel pool before a birthday meal out on the Southbank.
