Coming here soon... three kangaroos
Would you like to pat a kangaroo? See koalas up close? Of course you would, every tourist does! So the Sydney Aquarium on Darling Harbour is expanding. In the soon to open Sydney Wildlife World, you will be able to see all of Australia's wildlife without having to leave the city. Flapping flags all over the CBD promise you the wilderness... in a area half the size of a football field. Ah it's a brave new world, where the big outdoors are disneylandised (do you like my new verb?) for the mutual benefit of foolish consenting tourists and greedy unscrupulous developers. But why should I be surprised?
