Koala on the Move

by Kristi Hines

Further down the Great Ocean Road, we decided to take a detour towards the Camp Otway Lightstation. We didn’t make it all the way down to it because we noticed a bunch of people standing under a tree. We pulled off the road, grabbed our cameras, and found out what the fuss was about – there were koalas in the trees.

Ironically, we took a hike the day before to see koalas in “Koala Country” at Anakie Gorge and saw only one. After driving just a bit down this road, we ended up seeing around 11. This is one of them, holding on to its favorite spot on the branch.

I always feel that starting the week with something cute is a great way to go, so here is a photo from one of my favorite moments in Australia – getting up close to a baby koala!
