Kate and the kids looked happy as clams as they arrived at Brisbane airport — we’re guessing they’ll be meeting koalas and kangaroos very very soon.
Although we thought the Gosselin family might be heading to New Zealand, Kate Gosselin and her eight kids — 10-year-old twins Cara and Mady and 6-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Collin, Leah, Joel, Hannah and Aaden — landed in Brisbane today (Jan. 4) for some more Australian adventures! Despite the flood that is devastating the state, we’re pretty sure Kate and her camera crew won’t let a little water stop them from visiting Brisbane’s hottest attractions — and filming episodes for Kate Plus 8!
Kate, 35, who looked matchy-matchy with her two girls Alexis and Hannah, was beaming with excitement as she and her two nannies escorted the kids through Brisbane Airport. First stop? We’re guessing it will be the Lone Pine Koala Sancutary, the premiere tourist attraction in Queensland. Lone Pine is the first and largest koala zoo in the world, offering the opportunity for guests to cuddle with koalas, feed some kangaroos and lorikeets and meet a real-live platypus! There’s also snakes and lizards, which is perfect for Kate’s little alligator lover, Alexis!
Next (if they have time in their crazy breakneck schedule) we’re thinking Kate and crew will take the kids to visit the late Steve Irwin‘s Australian Zoo where they might get a personalized tour from Terri Irwin or even her kids Bindi, 12, and Robert, 7! The zoo is the home to amazing animals, including The Crocodile Hunter’s favorites — the Asian elephant, tiger, cheetah and of course, the crocodile! The Gosselins will also get a glimpse of red pandas, rhinoceroses, Tasmanian devils, pythons and exotic parrots! We’re sure the kids will love it, but knowing Kate, she’ll probably scream her head off like she did at Discovery Cove. Remember that episode?
Speaking of Discovery Cove, Brisbane has its own Sea World where Kate could take the kids to visit their favorite pals — dolphins! Sea World offers a children’s dolphin adventure, reef snorkel, penguin encounter and seal safari. There is even a behind the scenes tour of polar bears!
What do you think Kate and the kids will do in Brisbane? All we know is that by the looks on their faces, they’re happy to be missing school!
