I didn't stay at Bungalow Villiage, but did visit the animal sanctuary, where you can get very 'up close & personal' with some cute and not so cute ozzie animals. The koalas are just lovely, especially one little tyke called "Cuddles". He was so lovely and seemed to really like the keeper. Cuddles had been abandoned by his Mum, but was doing well. Good talks about the different animals we saw, their lifestyles, what they eat etc. Very informative. You can touch, hold or even have your photo taken ($15 for the koala one, not too bad really) with pythons (smallish one's) a young croc (mouth taped for safety) cockatoos, a frill necked lizard and a blue tongued lizard. Bungalow Bay Village is about a 10 min. walk from Horseshoe Bay, which is a lovely area. The bus stops outside Bungalow Bay Village. Lovely beach front at Horseshoe Bay, plenty of eateries. The public bus meets the ferry from Townsville and it cost me $2.50 bus fare (pensioner) to go to the other side of the island, where Horseshoe Bay is (half an hour drive).
