One Last Action Packed Day Down Under: Bridge Climbs, Zoos, Museums, and Lookouts

When you have less than 24 hours left in the "land down under", and a half dozen things yet to explore, there's only one logical thing to do: sacrifice sleep.

And so it is that you find yourself getting up at 2:30 am to climb an 80-meter bridge...

Or riding 30 minutes on a bus with your two kids to finally feed those rainbow lorikeets (not to mention cuddling koalas, jumping with joeys, and running with emus)...

Soon you're racing back to the center of town to hit that museum ("Queensland Museum South Bank") you planned on going to, but never managed. And while you're there, you can meet friends for one last coffee (which is much needed by this point in your hectic day).

Just before dashing off to the airport, you'll drive up Mount Coot-tha for one last view of the big city skyline.

It may sound crazy, but it's your last day in Oz. Make it count.

You're a woman after my own heart! Why would you do it any differently?
