Taronga Zoo. Excellent place to spend a go-at-your-own-speed day. Can get a little expensive, but Sydney siders can become Zoo Friends. For an annual fee you get into the zoo as often as you like plus get extra bonuses and discounts. This is one of my favourite photos of my girl with her little meerkat backpack. Which is an excellent segway into me saying I'm packing to go on holidays. Two weeks up the Sunshine Coast. A blissful couple of weeks of doing absolutely nothing.
