A monorail circles the park and we used it to get to the top of the park for the 11 o'clock dolphin show. Grrr, just seeing the name Bjelke-Petersen makes my skin crawl; the bible bashing, corrupt and ultra conservative bastard he was.
As I said yesterday, I am not fussed on monorails but since then I did hear of one in Japan that travels at 70 km/h.
It wasn't a bad way to get an overview of the park. Later there would be a jet ski show on this lake.
Scary rides, but not as scary as the ones we would see the following day.
Whatever you think of shows using live animals for human entertainment, the dolphin show is not to be missed.
The area where most of the action happened from.
Just amazing creatures. Not too often am I pleased with my camera but it did ok here. Mind, I took a lot duds too.

Yes, quite a few people there. There was some extra amusement for the crowd with a couple of silly old audience blokes dancing.
It was time for some lunch adjacent to this attraction. The pirate boats sail around on tracks and surrounding the water are water guns and of course there are water guns on board the boats. People were getting very wet as the guns had a range of more than five metres.
The boat was approaching us. I turned around and saw there was water on the paving behind me, so I stepped back. R did not and received a thorough soaking. It was great fun.
An ibis joined us for lunch. We saw a number of them but they are not in plague proportions as you see in Sydney.
Kiddies feeding the dolphins.
Cute penguins. More penguins tomorrow.
