Koalas can be found all over Noosa although their numbers are dwindling as their habitat decreases and domestic animals and foxes increase. These photos were taken in Noosa National Park a forty minute walk from my front door.
Kookaburras are also abundant. Taken in the dog park a 1 minute walk from my front door.
These three soon to be laughing kookaburras were taken in a friends back garden.
The White cockatoos which were nesting in this tree are also a 1 min walk away.
As are the flying foxes. They fly over our house every night as they head out to forage. The sky is black with them there are so many.
Something is nesting there. Don’t know what.
The mangroves are a four-minute walk from the front door. The crabs are plentiful and the river is full of crab pots of people who live locally wanting a bit of fresh mud crab for dinner. Personally I couldn’t kill one if I caught one.
You have to look to see the first lot – two reclining. These live just around the corner from me maybe a ten minute walk. The house always reminds me of the one in Gone with the Wind. It has a huge expanse of lawn all around it and then National Park. These kangaroos have made themselves at home here and can often be seen in the early morning and dusk. To my mind they replace the peacocks that you would expect with this property. Kangaroos are all over the place and are always on the golf course where they are so used to people they are quite tame despite being wild.
All manner of reptiles are to be found – I don’t even have to leave home.
The water birds are everywhere. As we are a minutes walk from the river they are constant companions. These pelicans were taken upstream about an hours walk from my place.
Not shown are the possums which also run around the roof of a night wearing hobnail boots. I do have a photo but can’t immediately find it. Noosa is full of wildlife which can be found in nature.
