Going Wild in Cairns - Post 401 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here are some of the most precious (to me) images from my Seaver/Leland photograph collection:

In March 2010, we visited Australia, New Zealand and Fiji on a three week Grand Circle Travel Tour to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, and I took some photographs with my trusty digital camera.  

We flew from San Diego (leaving 7 p.m. Friday, 12 March) to Los Angeles to Sydney to Cairns (arriving 6 p.m. Sunday, about 30 hours total) in early March 2010, and stayed in the Rydges Hotel in Cairns.  

1)  One of our first day trips on the tour was to Cairns Botanic Gardens:

2)  The day trip also visited Hartley's Crocodile Adventures:

We did see some wildlife - here is a koala perched on the back of a handler, Linda got to pet it:

4)  And some penned kangaroos waiting to be fed:

Unfortunately, I've lost the memories of all the details of this vacation.  Fortunately, I found my Facebook photo albums from 2010 with pictures and some captions so all is not lost.  I found that I posted very few photos from this vacation on Genea-Musings.
