Huge excitement at our house this afternoon, Princess discovered a Koala in a gum tree!!! only 25 metres (82 feet) from the house.

Investigating extremely loud grunting noises, she was rewarded with the rare sighting of one of our Australian mammals. Koalas are ‘vulnerable‘ in NSW, I certainly haven’t sighted one since a child over 30 years ago. Memorable moment!!

  1. Wow! I will have to show this to the kids. Not long ago, we watched a documentary on how koalas are adapting (or not adapting) to habitat loss. Everybody was very interested.

  2. Isn't it lovely to glimpse them in the wild? It's been a long time since I have as well, but have had the experience a number of times. Fabulous!

  3. Glad you are all so interested, alas when we returned the following day he had moved on:(

    I'm thinking haven't forgotten your question, will get back to you.
