Seaworld is where we'll be going today & by reading the pamphlets, I know this was a place which houses sea creatures and there's also water theme rides. As usual, the routine wake up call. While I was having breakfast alone at the cafe, this Chinese guy told his kid that they won't be spending so long at Seaworld & he was right. We arrived at Sea World quite early and it still wasn't opened yet. We waited for 10mins and then we were allowed to enter the place. The place seemed quite big with so many attractions. There was a dugong area, dolphin coves, pelican enclosures, penguin arenas and also a 4D simulator show. Din & I brought our own swimming gear but we were not able to play any of the water theme rides as it was closed for some renovation. What a bloop but that didn't matter as there are other things to do.
Nice view right?
We looked around, saw this place whereby kids can go inside the water and play around with dolphins.

Dolphins over there are so well trained that they're so tame. I observed that everytime the dolphin does a correct action, she will be rewarded with a fish. And in this bucket of small fishes, there are many seagulls that's always aiming to steal one. We also watched this live show involving water ski gangs portraying the 70s. You can see from the photos that'll I've uploaded. We left the place around 2pm and had our lunch at McDonalds after Din initially refused to eat at SeaWorld itself. We made this 15min walk to the nearest McDonalds then went back to SeaWorld entrance for our tour bus to come.

We were back at the hotel early around 4pm & I went out alone after Din informed he will go out later. I went out alone & walked from the hotel to Southport. It was like an hour walk and of course it was very tiring. Around 6.45pm, i received a call from my colleague in Singapore & informed me of some work stuff. I told her I'm on holiday in Australia & she hung up. I never want to hear anything regarding work stuff in Australia. Haha. Later, Din's turn to call me to have dinner. We had another kebab, short walks, watched silly street shows and went back. We've gotta pack up our stuff because tomorrow, we'll be heading to Sydney.
