Being an the only airport terminal hotel the reservation staff at Rydges Sydney Airport have the thrill of meeting and greeting lots of well-known names and faces and, as nice and ‘ordinary’ as they are, it’s pretty hard for the Irwin family to go anywhere these days without being noticed. It was a pleasure to host Terri, Bindi and Bob and as much as they enjoy staying with us, we enjoy visiting them.
Australia Zoo is simply a sensational attraction. You can cuddle koalas, hand-feed kangaroos and get up close to crocodiles. There are snakes, possums, turtles, tigers, cockatoos, camels, dingoes, Tassie Devils and heaps of other critters large and small – wildlife is a passion for the family and staff and visitors find it infectious. If you are up the Sunshine Coast way, it is easy to find – number 1638 on the appropriately named Steve Irwin Way at Beerwah.
