This little fellow decided to camp out in the front garden tree where we were staying in Portland on our drive from Melbourne to Adelaide.. he didn't do much just sat there looking down at us and we staring back at him.. but it was exciting to see a real live koala!
Having the most wondeful time here down under and off tomorrow back to Melbourne to meet up with a whole gathering of rellies!
Then Sydney and Cairns and back home in March.. this is a wonderful way to miss an English winter.

I think my children would have flipped backwards to see a Koala that close!

You are so lucky to have seen a koala! I would have just stayed looking at him until he left. lol.

Awesome pic and I am sure a more than awesome trip.

Wow!! If I'm excited seeing the pic, I can imagine what a thrill it was to see a koala in real life! I always thought they only hung out in the forest where no one really sees them except the photographers from animal planet! I look forward to following your adventures!
